Counting in the Seanad election complete.
Seems FF have 16, Blueshirts 12, Shinners 5 (incl E McCallion) Indos 9
Didnt check the rest. New Taoiseach will nominate 11.
Dont know if it matters any more but Alan Kelly will ne the bee Labour leader.
Will hardly be a success as he tells it as it is ......unless that will be the way to go in the post Covid world?

Elisha, wtf, Sinn féin nepotism at its greatest. Well good luck to yous

No handy numbers left in the 6 Cos I suppose.
Hopefully LeoMícheál will renominate that Marshall chap so as  to have a Unionist voice there again.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Assuming that's the fella from Markethill he was in the papers on Thursday saying it was very unlikely he'd be reselected, he wasn't too impressed.

They are only following a long tradition of Irish Politics.  The entire history of southern politics has been littered with nepotism and some fairly ropey politicians along with some good ones.   

Bernard Cowan, Barry Cowan, Brian Cowan
Sean Lemass, Noel Lemass, Eileen Lemass
Charlie Haughey, Sean Haughey
Patrick Lenihan, Brian Lenihan, Snr and Jr, Conor Lenihan, Mary O'Rourke
Phelim Calleary, Sean Calleary, Dara Calleary
P Flynn, Beverley Cooper Flynn
The Healy Raes
Shane McEntee, Helen McEntee
John Bruton, Richard Bruton
Oliver J Flannagan, Charlie Flannagan
Enda Kenny, Henry Kenny
Eamon O'Cuiv, Eamon de Valera

Same in the North:

The Dodds Family
The Paisley Family
Carmel Hanna, Claire Hanna
Mark Durkan, Mark H Durkan
Roy Beggs, Roy Beggs Jnr
Alex Maskey, Paul Maskey

I could go on, but that would require more thinking than I could be bothered with on a Saturday night.

He was a "Brexit" person, perhaps they should appoint a "medical" person in the present scenario.

Every time I'm tempted to laugh at the Yanks for electing Trump, I remember the Healy-Raes.

You can add another Maskey to that list, Conor Maskey, who SF placed into the vacant John Finucane Belfast City Council seat
