Meath East


Number of seats: 3


A new constituency. Fianna Fail will take one seat, Fine Gael another (Shane McEntee) and Labour (Dominic Hannigan) the third. The Greens could have done well here had they established a presence early enough.


Prediction: FF 1; FG 1; Lab 1.

Best candidate: Dominic Hannigan (Lab)

Weakest link:  Mary Wallace (FF)

In the long grass: Thomas Byrne (FF)
