Constituency Shuffle

Musical Seats in Dublin

While the constituency revision affords the best politician of the last Dáil, Joe Higgins, a chance to return in Dublin West next time (it has got an extra seat), another of the Dáil's best TDs, Ciaran Cuffe, is facing a challenge in Dun Laoghaire, which has lost a seat. Either he goes or Barry Andrews of Fianna Fail goes.
