As we are quickly approaching a General Election in the Republic and like 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

Now comes the turn of my home Constituency of Cork South Central. In 2016 the following were elected:

  • Michael McGrath – Fianna Fail
  • Micheal Martin – Fianna Fail
  • Simon Coveney – Fine Gael
  • Donnchadh O’Laoghaire – Sinn Fein

There have been no changes since the election and all four sitting TD’s will be running again. It remains a four-seat constituency.
