Much noise in the past 48 hours with the official announcement of the candidacy of 23 year old Dylan Haskins in Dublin South East. Dylan is standing as an independent candidate and has been involved in promotion and organisation of cultural events in Dublin city. I get the impression that lots of people know Dylan, whether they live in Dublin South East is another matter but over 5,000 people have watched this video since it’s launch on Monday morning and they know people who know people.

I met him yesterday to ask about his candidacy and platform.


So far the following candidates have declared in Dublin South East (4 Seats), Chris Andrews (FF), Lucinda Creighton (FG) Mannix Flynn (Ind) Dylan Haskins (Ind) Kevin Humphreys (Lab) Annette Mooney (ULA- Ind) Ruadhan Mac Aodhain (SF) Eoghan Murphy (FG) Ruairi Quinn (Lab) Paul Sommerville (Ind).
