The outcome of the election can be predicted. Fianna Fail will win the most seats and Fine Gael and Sinn Fein will be a close second and third. It is less easy to predict how many seats each will win, and more difficult again to predict who will be in the next Government. But here goes.

There are political anoraks who think of little else during an election campaign. That is, of how many seats the various parties and Independents will win. As of yet, no such expert has ever predicted the seat numbers accurately in advance. I shall not start here.
