Sean Gallagher to seek support of Longford County Council in Aras bid

It’s being reported that a motion is to come before Longford County Council to support Sean Gallagher as a presidential candidate.

The Cavan man announced yesterday that he was seeking the support of ten local authorities in his bid for the Aras, including Roscommon and Leitrim.

It’s understood that a proposal to support the businessman has been lodged with Longford and Cavan County Councils this afternoon.

Longford County Council is not scheduled to have a monthly meeting until the 12th of next month with the closing date for getting the required national support by the end of September.

However, the local authority may facilitate a special meeting in order to hear from other Aras hopefuls.
