On the Campaign Trail - Episode 4: The verdict in Cork North West

Daniel McConnell and Mick Clifford have been on the campaign trail and they deliver their verdict here.

All this week, ahead of Election 2020 on Saturday, we will be taking a look at all of the runners and riders in each of the five Cork Constituencies.

We will be examining the lie of the land in each area and crucially delivering our verdict as to who we think will fill the 18 seats from Cork in the 33rd Dail. Today, we are looking at the Constituency of Cork North-West.

This is a three-seat constituency and there are nine candidates competing.

Today, we are calling it that returning to the 33rd Dáil will be:

  • Michael Creed (FG)
  • Aindrias Moynihan (FF)
  • John Paul O'Shea (FG)

Watch back on episode 1, 2 and 3 here...
