Over 100 attend Fianna Fail convention for Boyle area

Three more candidates have been selected for Fianna Fail for the local elections in May of this year.

A large crowed of around 100 is reported to have been attended the convention for the Boyle electoral area in the Percy French Hotel in Strokestown last night.

The party had already instructed that three candidates be selected and following the withdrawal of Rachel Doherty in recent weeks no vote was necessary to select the remaining three people.
