Solidarity candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 10th July 2018 – initially as a joint post involving candidates for both Solidarity and People Before Profit, but these have now been separated across different pages – with updates as new candidate nominations announced. Any links in this post are to online announcements of candidate selections – there will be no specific links to candidate webpages.

The third of my series of rolling blog posts, in which I detail the latest information as to candidate selections relating to the different political parties and grouping and/or candidate declarations (as in the case of the non-party grouping). The rule of thumb here is that I will add party candidates in most cases only after they have been officially selected to run for the party  at a selection convention or by some other means of candidate selection. I try my best to find information about local election candidate selection conventions, but in some cases this information is hard to find and occasionally it can be some time after a convention takes place before I find this information and hence am in a position to update this page accordingly.

The post will focus on the candidate selections for Solidarity.

In the 2014 Local Elections there were fourteen Solidarity candidates (although they contested the 2014 elections as the Anti Austerity Alliance) elected. A number of defections in the years following the 2014 elections means that there are currently twelve Solidarity City/County Councillors, according to my best estimates.

As of now, five Solidarity candidates are listed on this page: four of these are female (80.0%) and one is male (20.0%).

The candidates that have been officially selected to contest the 2014 Local Elections as Solidarity candidates include:

On 5th July 2018, Cllr Fiona Ryan and Carol Brogan were selected to contest the next local elections as Solidarity candidates for the Cork City North West and Cork City North East electoral areas respectively. Three Solidarity party candidates for the Limerick City electoral areas were selected at a convention in the Absolute Hotel in Limerick City on 26th October 2018. At that convention, Cllr. Cian Prendiville announced that he would not be contesting the next local elections or general election and would be stepping down from his council seat for personal reasons, as reported by the Limerick Leader (27th October 2018).

    Hi, how do we add Sharon Briggs of People Before Profit to this list of Candidates? She will be running in the next local elections in Bray and is the party nominated Wicklow Candidate for People Before Profit in the next General Election.
