George just couldn't face a life in politics
FINE Gael has 51 members in the current Dail. Of these, 15 are first-time TDs. At least three have been mentioned as frontbench material but are still awaiting their turn.
Five of the 51 were first returned in by-elections. Another five are either trained economists or have track records in business and commerce.
A further eight are parents of young children.
