Loughglynn’s Michael Creaton has announced his intention not to seek re-election after ten years as a Fine Gael County Councillor ahead of the party’s selection convention for the Roscommon Municipal District on March 10th.
Gerry Coffey, a well-known Granlahan auctioneer and chairman of Michael Glavey’s GAA Club, has said that he may seek to replace Cllr. Creaton.
Cllr. Creaton was first elected in 2009 and was re-elected in 2014 but earlier this week Fine Gael’s regional organiser Enda McGloin confirmed the news that he was bowing out.
