In Co. Laois we selected three excellent local election candidates, Bryan Corrigan (Borris-in-Ossory Mountmellick), Eoin Barry (Graiguecullen-Portarlington) and Cllr. Marie Tuohy (Portlaoise) who are aiming to take a seat in all three wards in Laois.
In Leitrim, we selected the fantastic Bernie Linnane in the Manorhamilton LEA.
In Dublin West, we selected two of our stalwart councillors, Cllr. John Walsh (Castleknock) and Cllr. Mary McCamley (Blanchardstown-Mulhuddart) who will be hold their seats on Fingal County Council.
And at our Labour Think-In in Maynooth, we were delighted to select Cllr. Angela Feeney to run in the Maynooth LEA.
We have another busy few weeks ahead, with conventions in Cork City South East this evening and others in Waterford, Cork South West, Dun Laoghaire, Kerry and Wicklow in the coming weeks.
If you would like to organise a selection convention for your area, please get in touch by email at [email protected].
