Local Election pages on different County/City Council websites

Adrian Kavanagh, 29th April 2019

This page/post aims to identify/provide links to webpages on different City Council and County Council websites, which provide useful information relevant to the upcoming Local Elections.

The level/range of information provided by these webpages seems to vary quite dramatically. Most, as of now, do seem to include “guides on postering” details, as well as details on how candidates can get nominated, but little more in some cases (where there is especially useful extra information/resources provided by a site/webpage, I’ll note this below). It is probably still very much early days (late April 2019), as of now, so the level on information on these webpages/websites is likely to increase over the coming weeks.

2019 Local Elections candidate selections for the “Other” political parties/groupings

Adrian Kavanagh, 19th March 2019

The groups/parties listed here are smaller parties that had – at least by the middle of March 2019 – selected only a relatively small number of Local Elections 2019 candidates, including Aontú, the Workers Party, Renua, Eirigi and Republican Sinn Féin. As such – and mainly due to the time pressures being experienced by the owner/creator of this website – candidate selections for all of these parties will be logged in this “all in” post.

People Before Profit candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 10th July 2013 (as a post for both Solidarity and People Before Profit candidates) – stand alone People Before Profit page created on 8th November – 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 seventh 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 post will focus on the candidate selections for People Before Profit.

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.

New Irish (Non-Irish/UK nationals) candidates contesting the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, 30th October 2018

This post will attempt to list all of the “New Irish”, or Non-Irish/UK national, candidates who have been officially selected to contest the local elections in May 2019, or else have declared their intentions to contest these elections as independent candidates. For the purposes of this post, the definition of “New Irish” includes people who were born outside Ireland and who were not Irish (or UK) citizens before moving to the Republic Ireland. This post will include candidates who subsequently gained Irish citizenship on moving to, or after moving to, the Republic of Ireland as is the case for a number of the candidates listed here.

At present (as of 28th May 2019) I can account for fifty three candidates in this group (2.7% of the total number of selected/declared local election candidates), including twenty female candidates (32.7%) and thirty three males (62.3%) candidates.
