For the fourth election in a row, Whelan and other leading electoral commentators have created a uniquely detailed guide to the national political landscape; key policy issues and the concerns which will dominate the election debate. The book also explores the likely campaign strategies of each of the parties and examines how new gender quotas, campaign finance regulations, postering restrictions, turnout, and the impact of social media will shape the campaign environment.


The book details all 40 battlegrounds at the outset of the campaign.  Constituency by constituency, it assesses the performance of the parties and independents over the last five years and their likely performance in the 2016 election.  The handbook also explores the key local issues which may determine fates when voters go to the polls.


As the essential guide for anyone covering, competing in or interested in Election 2016, The Tallyman’s Campaign Handbook is supported by Paddy Power and published by The Liffey Press in paperback from €19.95, available at all good bookshops, or online from: www.theliffeypress.com  (ISBN 978-1-908308-85-6)
