Those who missed out ...

Those who missed out ...

Mary Mitchell O'Connor (55) Dun Laoghaire

First-time TD believed to be in line for promotion because the constituency traditionally has a minister.

Marcella Corcoran Kennedy (51) Laois-Offaly

Sharing a constituency with Minister for Foreign Affairs, Charlie Flanagan, ruled her out on geography.

Catherine Byrne (58) Dublin South Central

A TD since 2007 and long-time FG stalwart. But she was not in the running for promotion on this occasion.

Regina Doherty (43) Meath East

Lost out to Damien English in neighbouring constituency Meath West.

Aine Collins (44) Cork North West

Another first-time TD rated as able and committed.
