As voters across the UK prepare to go to the polls in tomorrow's general election, the son of a Bohola woman is hoping to win a seat for the Labour party.

37-year old Stuart Brady is a former professional rugby player and a barrister, and is standing as a Labour candidate in constituency of Loughborough in the East Midlands.

Stuart describes himself as "three-quarters Irish, half from Mayo, the other quarter from Tipperary".

His mother's parents were Kellys and McNicholas from Bohola, while his father's family are from Tipperary.

The seat in his constituency is very much in play as the sitting Tory MP  Nicky Morgan is not running in this election - she's quitting politics citing the abuse she has received over Brexit, and the impact on her family.

Mr Brady stood unsuccessfully in the Nottinghamshire County Council elections in May 2017, but will be hoping to take a crucial seat for Jeremy Corbyn's party in tomorrow's general election.

The Tory and Labour leaders are touring the country today, making their final pitches ahead of tomorrow's general election.
