Fianna Fáil has announced one change to its ticket for May’s local elections in the Tullamore Local Electoral Area.

Tullamore Town Cllr Tony McCormack, who was originally selected alongside Cllr Sinead Dooley, Cllr Danny Owens and Frank Moran, has withdrawn from the race due to business commitments. Fellow Tullamore Town Cllr Declan Harvey has been included on the ticket in his place.

Cllr Harvey commented, “It is an honour to represent Fianna Fáil in the upcoming elections. I will be working with communities across Tullamore in the coming weeks to listen to people’s views and hear concerns about the recent cuts to our local services. I want to provide a strong voice for the people of Tullamore on Offaly County Council.”

Cllr McCormack said, “I want to wish the four Fianna Fáil candidates the very best of luck in May. I remain strongly committed to working with Fianna Fáil during the local election campaign and will be doing everything that I can to support our candidates in Tullamore”.

Local Deputy Barry Cowen commented, “On behalf of the party I want to thank Tony for his ongoing work as a town Councillor in Tullamore. I know he will continue to play a strong role in the local Fianna Fáil organisation.”
