2016 General Election Candidates: Wicklow


Wicklow received a lot of attention in the 2011 general election with 21 candidates and 19 rounds of counting for its last three seats to be filled. So far, while there are quite a few candidates, it doesn't look like Wicklow is in for a repeat of that experience. Fine Gael have three candidates, while Fianna Fáil are hoping to regain a seat. Billy Timmins will be hoping to keep his seat for Renua Ireland, and Stephen Donnelly will be campaigning for his Social Democrat party.

TDs elected in 2011:
Andrew Doyle (FG), Billy Timmins (FG, then REN), Simon Harris (FG), Anne Ferris (Lab), Stephen Donnelly (IND, then SD)
