Number of seats: 5
Fine Gael has effectively given up on regaining third seat in the constituency of its current leader, Edna Kenny. The two Independent TD, Beverly Flynn and Jerry Crowley are in jeopardy, but Beverly should hold on.
Prediction: FF 2; FG 2; Ind 1
Best candidate: Beverly Flynn (Ind)
Weakest link: John Carty (FF)
In the long grass: Dara Calleary (FF)
