FG Chooses Election Candidates In Longford Westmeath

Written 2 years ago by Newsroom

Three Fine Gael candidates will contest the next general election in Longford Westmeath.

Mullingar TD Peter Burke, Athlone senator Gabrielle McFadden and Longford councillor Micheál Carrigy were chosen at a selection convention last night.

Athlone councillor Tom Farrell withdrew his name following a directive from the party that one of the three runners must be female.

The event was organised amid the threat of a snap general election before the Tánaiste’s resignation yesterday.
