    It is great to see woman going forward. Bound to do a better job.

      Correct me if I am wrong, but thinking she will be better just because she is a woman is fairly sexist, which is exactly what she is opposing. Think about it!

    I always gave Síle de Valera nr. 1
    & in the last election, i voted nr 1 for the young female SF canditate,
    but I won’t be voting for any of these female canditates.

    I’ll be giving Ann Cronin at least a second pref vote, like the way she presents herself, seems like a “real” person, maybe too real for politics. I like the cut of her jib.

    Is “Legislation to prevent a repeat of past mistakes” a general policy? Like, would it be made illegal for me to order the duck spring rolls from my local Chinese again, because last time they weren’t very nice?
