Some councillors say SF would hijack role

The role is usually rotated amongst parties and Sinn Fein is due to elect one of its members as Dublin's first citizen.

Sinn Fein is now the largest party in the 63 seat council - with 16 councillors - but some councillors have claimed they will hijack the 100th anniversary celebrations in 2016.
