Former Leitrim County Council cathaoirleach Sinead Guckian looks set not to contest the local elections next year.
The Drumsna woman has been a councillor since 1999 and is the current chairman of the Leitrim joint policing committee.
Last Friday was Fianna Fáil’s deadline to receive nominations to contest the Carrick-on-Shannon selection convention for next May’s elections.
The only nominees going forward are Councillor Seán McGowan and Leitrim village’s Paddy Farrell.
Carrick businessman Fintan Cox failed to secure a nomination and is considering standing as an Independent.
