Shinners stretch for a double

The Sinn Féin surge began here in the by-election when Eoin Ó Broin masterminded his colleague Mark Ward's victory. Suddenly, the double doesn't look all that far-fetched but depends on being able to suppress Ó Broin and manage the vote with Ward. People Before Profit's Gino Kenny is standing in their way. Fianna Fáil's John Curran is grand. Fine Gael expects to take back the seat held by Frances Fitzgerald through Emer Higgins or Vicki Casserly. Labour's Joanna Tuffy, Independent Paul Gogarty and Green Peter Kavanagh are in the chasing pack. The main contenders are all up the Clondalkin end, so a Lucan local vote could play a factor.
