Assembly Elections: 14 days to polling day

22 February 2007

With election day just 14 days away, Sinn Féin activists across the Six Counties are knocking on doors, leafleting, postering and putting in the long hours needed to compete in a modern election. Sinn Féin members from the 26 Counties are also playing their part, with many Southern activists giving up free time and weekends to make that extra push for first preferences. With six seats per constituency and strong unionist transfer patterns in many areas, building Sinn Féin first preferences is the key to success in the Assembly poll. In the first of a two-week report, ROBBIE SMYTH assesses the Sinn Féin vote and profiles the candidates in ten of the constituencies. Free article

The Matt Treacy Column

22 February 2007

In my near lifetime of following the Dublin hurlers, last Sunday was only the third occasion that I can recall us getting a result against Kilkenny. So bear with me!
