ARCHIVE IRISH WOMEN CANDIDATES FOR EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT JUNE 2004
Table 1 provides a breakdown of each party's candidates by gender, and Table 2 lists all women candidates by party. Irish MEPs are elected from four multi-member constituencies, by the same STV system used for the Dáil. In the 1999 election one-third per cent of Ireland's fifteen MEPs were women, better than the EU average and comparable to this year's nominations. Only Fianna Fáil, the party with the most candidates, is offering voters a male-only slate of candidates.
Incumbent MEPs are marked below with an asterisk. One incumbent, Nuala Ahern of the Greens, is retiring at this election. Other pages on our Observatory list Irish results from past European elections, as well as current candidates in the UK. Information has been obtained from the official European election website.
Information on European
Election candidates is available at this website.
