Any Seanad Candidates for Lefties too stubborn to quit? March 22, 2016Posted by irishelectionliterature in Irish Politics.
If you are a Trinity or NUI Graduate or indeed a Councillor, Senator or TD, well the leaflets have come in post. You may have got emails or other communications too.
Even though I’m an NUI graduate, I didn’t bother voting in the last Seanad election as I thought the ballot paper had the potential to be a collectors item after the place was scrapped. It wasn’t scrapped so we are back again.
Anyway there are some candidates running for the NUI that I definitely won’t be voting for ….. as for who to vote for I don’t know much about that many of the candidates, they all seem to be into Reform of the Seanad , there are all sorts of voices… a ‘New voice’, ‘Fresh Voice’, ‘Trusted Voice’, ‘Independent Voice’ etc etc …Rory Hearne is one name that springs to mind that seems decent enough.. is there anyone else running on the the NUI (or Trinity) panels worth voting for?
or is worth going all the way down the ballot to leave certain candidates out?
