Social Democrat candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 20th July 2013 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 fourth 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 the Social Democrats.

As the party was founded just over a year after the 2014 Local Elections, the Social Democrats obviously were not in a position to contest these elections. However, a number of defections from the independent ranks/from other parties to the Social Democrats in the years after that party was founded means that there are currently seven Social DemocratCity/County Councillors, according to my best estimates.

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