As we are quickly approaching a General Election in the Republic. As with recent elections I will be listing the candidates standing for election across Cork City and County. This post will be updated as candidates announce their intentions

First, we will look at Cork North Central where a recent by-election will see many of the same candidates running again.

In 2016 the following were elected

  • Billy Kelleher – Fianna Fail
  • Mick  Barry – Solidarity – People Before Profit
  • Jonathan O’Brien – Sinn Fein
  • Dara Murphy – Fine Gael

Since the election in 2016, Billy Kelleher was elected as an MEP for Ireland South, Dara Murphy resigned as a TD to take up a post in the European Commission and Jonathan O’Brien announced he retirement as a TD. This leaves Mick Barry as the only sitting TD from 2016 running in this constituency. He will be joined by Padraig O’Sullivan of Fianna Fail who was elected at the recent bye-election to the seat left vacant by Billy Kelleher. It remains a four seat constituency.
