Fine Gael confirm Roscommon-Galway convention to take place next month

Fine Gael has arranged its selection convention for the Roscommon-Galway constituency.

It’ll take place on Monday, April 15th, in Roscommon town, at which it’ll choose its general election candidates.

Senator Maura Hopkins has confirmed she’ll seek a nomination after being unsuccessful in Dáil elections in 2014 and 2016.


Ballinasloe councillor Michael Finnerty is also looking to stand.

Three years ago, Senator Hopkins was Fine Gael’s only candidate in the constituency, but Cllr Finnerty wants two to be chosen on this occasion.
