Buckley's bounce back

Sinn Féin's Pat Buckley was in deep danger. A poor party organisation and tight base around Midleton and Youghal will now be compensated for by the party rise. Fianna Fáil young turk James O'Connor is putting in a great campaign to take him out, but will fall short of that target. In the event of a Fine Gael meltdown, O'Connor and Independent Mary Linehan-Foley turn their attentions to minister David Stanton's scalp. Fianna Fáil's Kevin O'Keeffe is solid out, while Labour's Seán Sherlock just has to fend off Fine Gael's Pa O'Driscoll.
