Tipperary guy today :

Jaysus, they're losing them by the new time. I wonder what the total is since the last local elections ?
This guy staying on as an independent, supports Casey re traveller crime.

Except for FF, Casey's biggest vote came from SF voters which is surprising considering they had a candidate, albeit brutally poor one, in the race.

Lad above I'd say knows views of the party's support base in Tipp.

I'd say many long standing sf voters are feeling frustrated with some aspects of party policy the peadar Toibin situation upset a lot of people he claims to have attracted a lot of sf voters to his meetings.in my opinion the the party have become obsessed with promoting women at every opportunity

I was hoping that Mary Lou would take SF more to the centre but this and backing that socialist crackpot in Venezuela and the constant protest and "crisis" narrative can only get you so far.

Mary Lou was never going to take SF anywhere other than where she is told to do.

I'm surprised Muintir hasn't jumped ship yet. Mind you, maybe he has as he barely posts these days.

It's a question of scale, proportionately SF have lost far more by quite a margin. I think they're finding senior hurling tougher than they thought it would be. Time was when their members just did what they were told by the leaders.

SF have lost a few, it's true, and I suspect there is an issue with party expansion coming up against internal culture. It's hard to maintain at this point the same level of discipline which characterised SF as an embattled political wing of a paramilitary group. But having said that, the loss of a handful of councillors is small stuff. SF's biggest problem in the south is that they are prepared to sell out their C2DE support base in order to share the trough with FFG - they will never win over the ABC1s, and they can only alienate the C2DEs.
