In a very graphic appeal / canvass for every possible vote, the Healy Rae brothers, Michael, TD and Cllr. Danny are not leaving a single vote to chance.
First, there was Michael’s rousing anthem release – which got huge publicity throughout the country – and then came the 90 second video message which introduced their double act for election day in the sprawling Kerry constituency.
Voters Throughout The Kingdom
Now, for the benefit of Healy Rae voters throughout The Kingdom, they have just issued a colour coded map of the constituency. This is a sophisticated, vote management strategy which is designed to see Kerry political history being made on polling and counting days on February 26th and 27th respectively.
While outgoing TD, Michael has the greatest share of the constituency carve-up, Danny’s piece maps out exactly the area in which he enjoyed his greatest ever political triumph. He polled a massive 4,388 first preference votes in the local elections of May 2014. He also enjoys massive support in our own area here in Castleisland and its hinterland.
Especially Sweet Day
That was in the Killarney Municipal Area and to make it especially sweet on that day, his son Johnny was also elected to Kerry County Council with an equally impressive poll-topping performance. Johnny’s first preference vote that day reached 3,495 almost 1,500 over the quota in the South and West Kerry electoral area.
That’s a total of 7,883 first preference votes between them and a sobering thought for their opposition from all parties and none.
All the co-incidental indicators are pointing to another Healy Rae day of celebration as the count will also be conducted in the same Killarney Sports and Leisure venue which saw father and son being shouldered high on that memorable day. Interesting times ahead. To check out an enlargement of the just issued map click on the image above or on the advert column on the right and opposite these lines.
