Candidates for the 2019 Dáil By-Elections: An Overview

Adrian Kavanagh, 12th September 2019

In the May 2019 European Elections Deputies Clare Daly and Frances Fitzgerald won seats in the Dublin constituency, while Deputies Mick Wallace and Billy Kelleher won seats in the South constituency. This means that their seats in the Dublin Fingal, Dublin Mid-West, Wexford and Cork North-Central Dáil constituencies are now vacant and must be filled by a by-election in each of these constituencies before the end of this year, unless a General Election is called in the intervening period.

In this post, I will be detailing the names of the candidates who have been selected to contest the Dáil by-elections in these constituencies

Currently there are nine candidates listed here – two are female (22.2%) and six are male (77.8%), while this list includes three Senators (33.3%) and four City/County Councillors (44.4%), including one former Dáil deputy. As new candidates are confirmed between now and these elections – and as soon as possible after I become aware of this information – I will be updating this post to include their names.

Any links that are provided here will be solely to newspaper/media coverage that “prove” that a certain candidate has been selected. There will be no direct links to candidate home pages and other social media accounts, as well as to political party home pages.
