Why did Christy Burke resign from the IRA/Shinners?

Our theory here in Skangerland is that he was told that come the next election he wouldn't be selected as the IRA/Shinner candidate for Dublin Central. He recently and unsuccessfully contested the byelection there, but by the time of the next General Election there'll be someone else standing on the IRA/Shinner ticket, someone who's been out of office for a few days now.

So that's our theory: Burke was told that he wouldn't be contesting the next General Election because he'd have to make way for Mary Lou, so he quit.
