Thanks Celine for taking care of Adam while we went and voted! I can’t remember who I gave all my votes to but the first two went to:
- John McCarthy, an independent standing on health issues, including mental health. (yes, that is a pony tail!)
- Noel O’Flynn, a Fianna Fail politician. He helped us a few weeks ago, although in hindsight there was little he could do. I’ll be blogging about that once an appeal is done.
I didn’t vote for the Worker’s Party, Socialist Party (same thing?), Sinn Fein or the Greens.
Around the Irish blogosphere:
- Mel listed who he voted for.
- Claire voted for the first time.
- The Swearing Lady ponders the paradox that the Irish government wanted Sinn Fein to be part of the administration in the North, but nobody will touch them with a barge pole down south.
- Adam thinks Rock the Vote was a complete failure. As I only became aware of that movement through blogs talking about it and taking the piss out of it I’d have to agree.
- More coverage from Politics.ie, Irish Election, and of course Damien has plenty to say on the election. I rather enjoyed the grey tigers video he posted!
