Harkin spots a gap

Sinn Féin's Martin Kenny was given a clean run by the party, which dropped Chris MacManus, to ensure no slippage. The mistake can't be undone now. Kenny will be comfortably elected, as will Independent Marian Harkin' whose entry spooked Sinn Féin into the move. Fianna Fáil's Marc MacSharry has the Sligo town base to see him home. But Eamon Scanlon is caught in a scramble with Fine Gael. Party HQ is tipping Thomas Walsh, but former TD Tony McLoughlin is backing Frank Feighan.
