Fergus

Finlay

Was first out of the traps, but has a struggle trying to beat Michael D to the Labour nomination.

Mairead

McGuinness

Her name has long been associated with the post but may suffer from a growing appetite to have a man in the Aras.

John

Bruton

The former Taoiseach is almost guaranteed the FG nomination if he wants it -- but it isn't yet clear if he does.

Brian

Crowley

Has always been coy when asked about his intentions, but will have to declare his plans soon.

David

Norris

The keenest of all the candidates, but he needs to get a nomination first. Also needs an effective fundraising machine.
