Sinn Féin's Kathleen Funchion was dead in the water but now has a fighting chance, which changes everyone else's ambitions. Fianna Fáil's John McGuinness in Kilkenny city is solid.
But Bobby Aylward in the south county is vulnerable if Jennifer Murnane O'Connor in Carlow gets the better of Fine Gael's Pat Deering and Fianna Fáil falls short of three seats.
Fine Gael minister John Paul Phelan seems OK. Green Malcolm Noonan will need a big lift to be in contention.
