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)
