Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Irish electors are phenomenally unpredictable. I restrain myself from saying "illogical". Clearly there's a lot of very local politics going on, with the personality and record of individual candidates paramount. When one candidate is eliminated, it's rare to see much more than half of their preferences going to the logical successor... it's very scattershot.
