Now open! Those exit polls last night were fascinating. If they are close to accurate, and what’s the sense of that, then a good day or couple of days for the Green Party. Not so great for SF, and both FG and FF seem to have lost some vote share as against 2014. Not great […]A

As one would expect when a modern country band has songs about upland bird hunting with pointers (an English pointer, but que sera), I’m loving it.  While there’s certainly nothing wrong with songs about Mama, trains, trucks, prison, and getting drunk. A more insightful lyricist is appreciated, especially now during the reign of pop country. […]A

This caught my eye, on the RTÉ overview of the European Elections. Uncertainty abounds. Nineteen candidates – ten men and nine women – are vying to become an MEP. That is seven candidates more than in 2014 and nine more than in 2009.  What would account for that increase?A

Having campaigned in 1986 and again in 1995 I?m always struck by the polling outcomes at the two referendums on Divorce. In the former case 63% voted against the provision of divorce. In 1995 the balance was a remarkably close 51% to 49%. I?ve often wondered was that the first last hurrah for the religious […]A

Observations, predictions, general analysis all welcome on this thread. Hod did the campaigns go? What about the referendum? Any straws in the wind. And while I’m at it, I’ve never been in a polling place that was crowded, anyone have that experience and if so where and was it a specific time? A friend of […]A
