Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Checking more into 2009, I find that apparently France failed in electing their shadow MEPs, which contributed to the seating of all shadow MEPs being delayed. I don't find any specifics on why they failed or how it was solved (appointment or by-election, most likely).

Though I would suspect that while France's problems are EU's problems, there is a distinct risk that Ireland's problems are Ireland's.
