Dublin Central: Donohoe Vs Bacik?

Accroding to an opinion poll in tomorrows Sunday Independent for the Dublin Central the voting figures are as follows.

  • Paschal Donohoe (FG) 28%
  • Ivana Bacik (Lab) 20%
  • Maureen O Sullivan (Ind) 18%
  • Mauice Ahern (FF) 10%
  • Sinn fein (Not Selected) 3%
  • David Geary (Green) 2%
  • Malachy Stenson (SWP) 1%
  • Undecided 18%

Its less then four weeks to the election and it looks like Fianna Fail will be beaten into fourth place in the Dublin Central Byelection. The race for the seat is between Fine Gael Senator Pachal Donohoe and Labour Senator Ivana Bacik. There is only 8% sperating them so it will be an interesting battle. Sinn Fein will poll higher then 3% when they select a candidate, which they would really want to be doing at this point.

Maurice Ahern doesn’t seem to have a hope of winning this seat and it will be between Fine Gael and Labour on who wins the seat. The transfer are what will win it! June 6th will be an interesting day!
