Congratulations to Victor Boyhan, Barry Saul, Cait Keane, Bridget Teefy, Terry O’Flaherty, Declan McDonnell, Thomas Welby, Walter Lacey and Paul McAuliffe, all former Progressive Democrats, who got handsomely elected or reelected in the local elections. Some of them struggled to get elected as PDs, which just goes to show that even with good candidates the PD label was often more of a liability.
Except when I ran, of course. I was just a shite candidate. I could have been running for the George Lee/Barack Obama Free €50 Notes For All Party and I still wouldn’t have gotten in.
