Roscommon Green party candidate backs Martin for leader

The Green party candidate who ran in the general election campaign in Roscommon Galway has said she’d like to see Catherine Martin as the leader of the party.

Julie O’ Donoghue who’s a secondary school teacher says she believes Catherine Martin has a good appreciation of the issues facing rural Ireland, and that is one of the main reasons she’s giving the Monaghan native her support.

The Roscommon woman says contests are a healthy part of any political party, and it’s more to do with planning for the future rather than any issue with Eamon Ryan’s performance.
