Byelections could be held before Christmas, says Taoiseach

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has told his Ministers that four Dáil byelections could be held in November or December.

The writs for the polls needed to fill the vacancies created by the election of TDs Frances Fitzgerald, Billy Kelleher, Mick Wallace and Clare Daly to the European Parliament must be moved by January 2nd, six months after they take their seats in Europe.

However, Mr Varadkar told his Ministers at the weekly Fine Gael pre-Cabinet meeting that it is unlikely that the writs will be moved immediately after Christmas, and suggested the move could instead be made in November or December this year.
