Carrick-on-Shannon’s Leslie O’Hora is to contest May’s local elections.
The Green Party activist contested the general election in 2016, getting 603 first-preference votes in the Sligo-Leitrim constituency.
He’s expected to be ratified as the party’s candidate for the Carrick-on-Shannon Municipal District next weekend.
A selection convention is taking place in the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill on Saturday, February 16th.
Mr O’Hora refused to confirm his intentions until then.
