Cork South Central
Number of seats: 5
Grandstanding by Micheál Martin could cost Fianna Fail a seat here. Fine Gael poised to take two seats with Simon Coveney and Deirdre Clune. Dan Boyle (GP) certain of re-election, unless upset by Labour candidate, Ciaran Lynch.
Prediction: FF: 2; FG 2; GP 1.
Best candidate: Dan Boyle (GP)
Weakest link: Micheál Martin (FF)
In the long grass: Ciaran Lynch (Lab)
