Reilly faces tough test in Meath

The weekend’s headlines should come from Meath, where Joe Reilly, who came close to taking a seat in the Republics last general election may well hold up the Sinn Fein vote his in the constituency. The Belfast Telegraph reckons that anything less than third place will represent a slide. If his vote holds up in current circumstances, he will surely be counted in the first rank of the next generation of Sinn Fein TDs.

Update: Richard’s going to be blogging the count, on his GSM phone!
