Convention will be held to fill Sinn Fein Council seat

Sinn Féin will hold a convention to determine the candidate to fill the Leitrim County Council seat vacated by newly elected TD, Martin Kenny.

The Aughavas native was elected on Sunday evening on the 13th Count.

His success has left a vacancy for the party to fill and despite speculation in some media circles about possible replacements, no decision has yet been made.

It is understood that a convention will most likely be held in the coming weeks where all those interested in being co-opted to the post can register their interest.

The party will then select the candidate to take over Kenny's former council seat.

The new councillor will join three other sitting Sinn Féin representatives on Leitrim County Council, namely Cllr Padraig Fallon; Cllr Seadhna Logan and Cllr Brendan Barry.
