More Information

Patricia, Mary and Mary-Lou too

There are four seats in the Taoiseach's constituency of Dublin Central and three female candidates running there, Patricia McKenna (Greens), Mary Fitzpatrick (FF) and Mary Lou McDonald (SF).

"Patricia, Mary and Mary Lou too" follows them in Dublin central from the weeks before the election was called right down to the midnight hours of the count.

It's the first time any of the three have been on this ticket and the likelihood is only one of them will win a seat in Bertie's backyard.
