Dun Laoghaire

Number of seats: 5

Fine Gael had three seats here. In 2002 it won none. If there is any revival in Fine Gael fortunes in 2007 it has to take a seat here. Fiona O'Malley (PD) likely to lose her seat. Barry Andrews (FF) not certain either.

Best candidate: Ciaran Cuffe (GP)

Weakest link: Fiona O'Malley (PD)

In the long grass: Richard Boyd-Barrett (PBP)

Prediction: FF: 2; FG 1; Lab 1; GP 1.
