Keeping it local: an investigation of the phenomenon of ‘friends and neighbours’ voting at the Irish general elections of 2011 and 2016
Mullaney, Cathal
Through use of tally data, this research considers the standing of the 'friends and neighbours' effect at two Irish general elections, 2011 and 2016. It does so through an examination of the 'friends and neighbours' effect and how it is impacted by a number of different variables, in order to provide an added insight into an element of voting behaviour that has permeated throughout the generations in Irish politics.
