Backed what up??? You made scurrilous allegations without any actual proof that I saw.
I've chosen not to repeat stories about Coveney and his private life. If that frustrates and/or annoys your need for salacious gossip that's your problem, not mine
There was a story doing the rounds about his private life.
G'wan ya langer.
By the way I did back up my claim about Fierce and it was also backed up by another poster here that witnessed him on another occasion. Feel free to search the forum, I have no reason to lie unlike yourself.
 
I've said it before I think he's their best front-bencher, including MM, but I think the fact that he's from Cork following MM being FF party leader will tell against him. And the fact that they're from the same constituency would be nothing short of remarkable if MMcG gets the FF gig after MM steps down. He could get it in the future though. I think he's a very competent politician.
Fair point. Think the gig is Jim O' Callaghan's to lose despite him running a very poor by-election campaign for FF in Dublin last year. Feeling within FF is they need to reconnect to their old vote in Dublin.

I don't know he wants the leadership - as in MMcG.
I think once the Taoiseach has rotated back to LV there will be more pressure on leadership clarity in FF for next election. O'Callaghan would be a move back to core party values but in reality there are no heavy hitters there.

Not a chance I'd say. Well respected and good operator in Bishopstown area and was excellent Lord Mayor but that was good few years ago. FF would need a very good operator in Mehole's Blackrock/Ballinlough/ T Cross patch. With the exception of half hearted attempt by his daughter to contest council seat about 10 years ago, don't think rest of Martin family have any interest in political career.

With his GAA credentials I'd say his son would be a shoo-in if he ran but a political career isn't everybody's cuppa. Interesting to see who the parties will put forward in CSC. It's being suggested in many quarters now that MM will not run in another GE. If so, and presumably MMcG will run, then FF will be looking at a female candidate south of the river. Hobson's choice?

That ship has sailed away with Dev Og fortunately and hit the rocks off the coast of Clare due to an overweight unstable cargo of Nationalist Christian values, chicken suppers and regret as it sailed off into the Celtic setting sun twilight.

They need someone young with a bit of vision, ideally a rottweiler female on hormone replacement therapy who would not take any crap (I am more Republican than you) from Sinn Fein, be more fake Socialist than fake Socialist Labour, out canapé Fine Gael and ignoring all the other nutcase far-lefties.

Same ship that had McGrath onboard.
