Fine Gael to discuss Seanad race

  A decision on who will be the Fine Gael Seanad nominee from the Roscommon/South Leitrim constituency will be made at a meeting in Rooskey on Monday next.             Among the names expected to go forward are Cllr. Dominick Connolly from Fuerty and Cllr. Damien Brennan from Co. Leitrim. Cllr. Enda McGloin has already secured a nomination for the Industrial and Commercial Panel. Cllr. John Connor is seeking to run on either the Labour panel or the agricultural panel. It is thought that he is seeking a party nomination for the Labour panel and a vocational nomination for the agricultural panel.             The Fine Gael Constituency Executive in Roscommon-South Leitrim will hold an Executive meeting in the Shannon Key West Hotel, Rooskey next Monday, June 11th at 9 pm.             The meeting will be the party’s first since the General Election, during which Fine Gael secured two seats in the new three-seat Roscommon-South Leitrim constituency. Among the items on the agenda at this meeting will be consideration of the party’s constituency nominee to contest the forthcoming Seanad Éireann elections on one of the Oireachtas sub-panels. The name of the nominee will be forwarded to a sub-committee of the party’s ruling Executive Council for final consideration.             All party members are welcome to attend Monday night’s meeting, which will be addressed by Deputies Frank Feighan and Denis Naughten. The matter may go to a vote and anyone who has been a member of the party for two years is entitled to vote.
