Lowry, Sinn Fein and Mattie McGrath... Once again, Tipperary the laughing stock of the country, and that's saying something when there are the likes of the Healy-Raes in Kerry

I think that the Pope, Luke Skywalker, Mother Theresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Stephen Hawking, Marie Curie could run in Tipperary and Lowry and McGrath would still get elected. It says more about the people of Tipperary that we keep voting for these jokers.

I'm nowhere near Lowry's area and didn't give him a scratch but to keep getting returned comfortably time and time again he must be doing something right

Ya I feel kinda ill from it to be honest.

He’s polling well everywhere in the county meaning it’s a Sinn Fèin thing rather than a Browne thing to be honest.

Definitely a Sinn Fein thing. A lot of my friends were planning on voting Sinn Fein, in spite of him rather than because of him.

FG got their strategy wrong in Tipp it seems. Madness running two candidates from the same part of the county

They weren’t the same part of the County - Clonmel and either Nenagh or Thurles, can’t remember - had never heard of her before and unfortunately for him, Garret Ahern wasn’t a very friendly fellow and not overly liked.

They’re both based in the south of the county, not FGs original strategy, but they were very close in votes when the party voted on who to run. I don’t think there was anyone strong in north tipp, and FG probably wanted to run a woman as well. Much as it pains me to say it, because he wasn’t up to much, I think Tom Hayes would have had more of a chance than Ahearn, Ahearn doesn’t have the personality for the job, and was banking on his surname to get him elected.

Garret Ahearn not getting in is one upside to this. I posted something on here a few nights ago that I removed quickly. But he should never be near public office in my opinion. A few in Clonmel might know what I am on about.

Whatever way they both got nominated they are pulling from the same bloc and have succeeded in splitting the vote almost bang down the middle. I honestly don’t know how the party didn’t see that coming.

What is the SF candidate like? I’ve never heard of him before, is he a councillor?
