Outgoing Midlands TD almost misses out on being on ballot paper for general election

An outgoing Midlands TD almost missed out on being on the ballot paper for the upcoming general election. 

Longofrd/Westmeath Fianna Fail TD, Robert Troy, only filed his election nomination papers with 12 minutes to spare before the deadline. 

He misplaced his original documents and only arrived at the courthouse with new papers with minutes to spare.

Speaking to Midlands 103, he said that after a very stressful morning, he was relieved to have made it in time.
