Galway East was the centre of attention earlier this Dáil term when Labour TD Colm Keaveney defected to Fianna Fáil. Now the party are running Senator Lorraine Higgins to take that seat back. Keaveney's Fianna Fáil colleague Michael P. Kitt is not contesting the election.

The constituency has lost a seat with the boundary revisions, so it's a case of seeing who will lose out once the votes have been cast.

TDs elected in 2011:
Michael P. Kitt (FF), Paul Connaughton Jr. (FG), Ciarán Cannon (FG), Colm Keaveney (LAB, then FF)
