Ah, that most arcane of institutions, the Irish Senate (Seanad) has an election a month or two after every parliamentary election. This is mostly because the Seanad is a talking shop with little power designed to bring specialist views to legislation to complement the generalist views of the lower house. That's the theory anyway. Anyway for anachronistic reasons there are "University seats". Trinity (my alma mater) gets 3 while the NUI, which has 4 universities, gets 3 as well.

The....er....selection of candidates is rather interesting.
