Dublin North West

Number of seats: 3

Either of the two Fianna Fail TDs here, Noel Ahern (brother of Bertie) and Pat Carey could lose to Sinn Fein's Dessie Ellis. But Labour's Rosin Shortall could also be in trouble. Fine Gael little chance.


Prediction: FF1; Lab 1; SF 1.

Best candidate: Pat Carey (FF)

Weakest link: Roisin Shortall (Lab)

In the long grass: Bill Tormey (FG)
