Fine Gael will struggle to take three seats in Carrigaline electoral area, says Cllr. Donnelly

Commenting on the recent defection of local councillor Deirdre Forde from Fianna Fail to Fine Gael, Green Party candidate for the Carrigaline area of Cork County Council and Passage West Town Council, Cllr. Dominick Donnelly said:  “It comes as no surprise to me that Cllr. Forde has abandoned Fianna Fail and gone over to Fine Gael in a desperate attempt to hold her seat.  However, even with three sitting councillors contesting, I really do not see Fine Gael taking three of the six seats in the Carrigaline electoral area.  I expect that either Councillor Forde, or one of her new party running mates, Cllrs. Lombard or Collins, will not hold their seat in June.”

Cllr. Donnelly continued:  “I have been out on the doors around the area for the past few weeks, and I am getting a very positive reception.  I fully expect to take one of the seats in the Carrigaline area in June, and become the first Green Party member of Cork County Council.  I was only about 150 votes short of taking a seat in 2004 on my first time out, and am confident of taking the seat this time around.  Cork County Council, which it must be remembered has been dominated by Fine Gael for over a decade, is in dire need of positive green thinking to prepare the county for what is coming in the future.”
