Two guys running in the Blackrock ward worth looking at:
Victor Boyhan (Far left) is a former PD councillor now running as an Independent. I knew Victor in the PDs, where he was very much on the Progressive wing of the Progressive Democrats. He’s a decent guy who gives a shit about politics. And he’s endorsed by Paul McGrath!
Ronan Farren is running for Labour, and was involved in the European Movement. I don’t know him well (I think I’ve met him twice.) but I know a lot of people who do know him and rate him seriously as one to watch.
