It was in response to the statement that 'it was a great performance from him '. He is a sitting minister and he was elected in last place , that doesn't seem like a great performance to me .

Give credit where credit is due, He got 10%

Nationally the party only got 6.6%.

This a tremendous performance when compared nationally ! Especially when one considers what a difficult portfolio he held !

Do you have to be reminded that some Ministers lost their seats ?

Well fair play to him. He held on when no one gave him a hope.

I'll make no secret of the fact that I don't like the guy , I find his attitude and arrogance disgusting . But he won't be representing me here in Limerick and the good people of Tipp are entitled to vote for whom ever they want . I do find his followers to be a bit fanatical as well though , but shur you probably get that with all the candidates .

I wasn't aware I was anything but mellow . It wasn't me posting 3 replies in rapid succession screaming Sour grapes at the end .

Shur maybe this result will encourage a bit of humility in the young man .

You won't see or hear much of him anymore. They only have 6 seats and no speaking time.

As much as you would love that, sorry to disappoint you. They will probably take two more seats

Dublin Bay North and Longford Westmeath. They just need to take one of these.
