Fianna Fáil Boyle convention to ratify trio

Fianna Fáil will select three local-election candidates for the Boyle electoral area tonight.

Two sitting councillors have been nominated – Boyle’s John Cummins and Strokestown’s Joe Murphy – along with Ballaghaderreen’s Aidan Sampey, who was unsuccessful in the 2014 local elections.

All three will take part in a selection convention in the Percy French Hotel in Strokestown at 7.30 tonight.

Fianna Fáil headquarters has instructed that three candidates be selected, meaning a vote won’t be necessary.
