Sleepless nights: Six TDs with reason to be nervous about today's report

The Constituency Commission report is the most keenly anticipated publication for every TD in the land. Here's a few who will have a sleepless night:

Michael Ring: Already breathing fire and brimstone over a cut to Mayo.

Alan Shatter and Peter Mathews: The leafy suburbs of Dublin South are fickle enough without losing two seats before a vote is cast.

Jerry Buttimer: The Fine Gael TD is looking at his home patch moving out of Cork South-Central.

Colm Keaveney: The new Labour Party chairman is facing the loss of half his heartland in an area where his party's support is already thin on the ground.

Michael Healy-Rae: The Independent TD will have to head into North Kerry to continue his father's legacy.
