Dublin West

Number of seats: 3

Brian Lenihan (FF) should be ok but the other two outgoing TDs, Joe Higgins (SP) and Joan Burton (Lab) have reason to worry. Leo Varadkar (FG) looks likely to take a seat. Joe Higgins (SP) not certain and neither is Joan Burton (Lab).

Best candidate: Joe Higgins (SP)

Weakest link: Joan Burton (Lab)

In the long grass: Leo Varadkar

Prediction: FF: 1; FG 1; SP 1.
