Carlow Kilkenny #ge11 RTE roadtrip meetup on Friday afternoon

Apologies for the multiple posts on this one. We’ve finalised the venue now for the final leg of our roadtrip on Friday. If you’re anywhere near the Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny, myself and Peter will be there to hear what you’ve got to say. It’s another interesting one because Fianna Fail’s dissenter in chief, former Minister of State John McGuinness is standing. Not cut and dried that he will win.

In Mary White it has one of the few Green candidates with an albeit very slim chance. Labour and Fine Gael are also set to make a gain of one seat each.

And just so this is not just Internet folk talking to other Internet folk, if you are coming we also ask that you bring along an older friend or relative who does not ‘do’ Facebook, Twitter or blogs.
