Creighton: 'I'll be very, very happy if I finish in joint third'
Renua Ireland leader Lucinda Creighton has insisted she will be "very, very happy" if she ends up in joint third place in terms of first preference votes in Dublin Bay South.
Ms Creighton was responding to a Millward Brown poll for the Irish Independent which shows that - at 13pc support - her seat is at risk.
She faces competition from Labour Party minister Kevin Humphreys, also on 13pc, Fianna Fáil's Jim O'Callaghan on 11pc and Fine Gael's Kate O'Connell on 10pc.
Eoghan Murphy, also of Fine Gael, is on 20pc while Sinn Féin's Chris Andrews is polling well on 17pc.
"I can assure you, if I finish up in joint third place next Friday or Saturday when the count begins I will be a very, very happy person indeed," she said.
