Kerry North

Number of seats: 3

Fianna Fail (Tom McEllistrim) and Fine Gael (Jimmy Deenihan) certain to take a seat each. The question is can Labour recover Dick Spring's old seat for Terry O'Brien, from Martin Ferris (SF). Ferris toped the poll in 2002 but seems in trouble now.

Best candidate: Terry O'Brien (Lab)

Weakest link: Martin Ferris (SF)

In the long grass: Norma Foley (FF)

Prediction: FF1; FG 1; Lab 1.
