It’s all to play for in Dublin Mid-West…

People Before Profit's Gino Kenny told The Echo this morning that it's 50/50 at this point as to whether he'll retain his seat in Dublin Mid-West. It's looking like Emer Higgins (FG), Gino Kenny (PBP) and John Curran (FF) will go head-to-head for the final two seats in this four seat constituency. Sinn Féin's Eoin Ó Broin and Mark Ward took the first and second seat respectively.
