Adding Ms Moriarty to the ticket would make sense in terms of geography and gender. Mr Brassil, a pharmacist in Ballyheigue, is based in the north of the constituency, while Ms Moriarty is based in the south.
Mr Brassil defeated former TD Tom McEllistrim at the party convention last weekend, although Mr McEllistrim had outpolled him in the first count.
