2016 General Election Candidates: Limerick City


Limerick City is the base of two ministers: Finance Minister Michael Noonan of Fine Gael and Education Minister Jan O'Sullivan of Labour. Noonan's 34 year career as a TD is unlikely to come to an end by anything other than his retirement, but with Labour's poll numbers as low as they are, will O'Sullivan keep her seat? Fianna Fáil's Willie O'Dea looks safe, and he is his party's only candidate.

Sinn Féin are running Cllr. Maurice Quinlivan, who received 8.6% of the vote in 2011, while the AAA-PBP are running Cllr. Cian Prendeville, who polled 1.7% - though that was before the surge in support for the anti-austerity parties. The Social Democrats and the Greens have candidates as well.

TDs elected in 2011:
Michael Noonan (FG), Kieran O'Donnell (FG), Willie O'Dea (FF), Jan O'Sullivan (Lab)
