Mayo Sinn Fein Councillor Gerry Murray has been nominated by his party to contest the upcoming Seanad Elections.
The deadline for proposals of nomination to the vocational panels for the Seanad elections is today.
Polling for the vocational panels on the 60-seat Seanad closes on 30 March.
The Charlestown based Councillor says it’s going to be a fair challenge as Sinn Fein had a poor local election which will make it difficult to get the required number of votes.
