Polling day for the local and European elections is Friday, May 24
With just six weeks to go to the local elections in Co Leitrim, there are 29 candidates putting their names forward for election across the three municipal districts for the 18 seats on Leitrim County Council.
Two sitting councillors, Sinead Guckian (FF) in Carrick-on-Shannon and John McCartin (FG) in Ballinamore, are not seeking re-election this time round and with former councillors and new candidates on the ballot papers, it will be interesting to see how it goes.
