Greens: Boyle out, Cuffe edges closer…

In Dun Laoghaire, Sean Barrett’s 3,440 surplus will probably take Green Party over the line. Richard Boyd Barrett, a chink of light for Sinn Fein next time round? But Dan Boyle loses in Cork South Central for the Greens. The Greens might just cannot crawl on to seven…

    Disappointing enough for those of us that bought into the media hype around the greens pushing for double figures. At least they held seats and may be able to have some policies implemented in government, but the loss of Dan Boyle is a blow. His economic manifesto was superb; a bit more sensible left-of-centre policy like that and they’ll be headed for greater gains next time.

    Of all the possible seat losses that one came from left side. Maybe a bit of over confidence because everyone thought Boyle was a shoe-in. Along with Eamon Ryan, he was the best GP performer in the last Dáil.
