CLLR. JOHN RYAN, Mick Glynn and Sarah Wray have been se­lected to con­test next year’s Wick­low County Coun­cil elec­tion.

The se­lec­tion con­ven­tion for the Bray Elec­toral Area of Fine Gael was held at the Glen­view Ho­tel last Thurs­day night and was at­tended by a large crowd.

Cllr. Ryan, who was elected in 2004 to Wick­low County Coun­cil to rep­re­sent Bray, En­niskerry, Kil­macanogue and Round­wood, was nom­i­nated by Frank Byrne and Harry Wil­liams.

Sarah Wray, mean­while, was nom­i­nated by John Byrne and Clare Comer­ford. Ms. Wray said that she is a young mother and a nurse who has ex­pe­ri­enced first hand the ef­fects of the ‘sav­age’ cuts of the gov­ern­ment.

Mick Glynn was nom­i­nated by Ray Comer­ford and Cllr. John Ryan. He said he was looking for­ward to the chal­lenge of get­ting Bray Back to a town ‘we can be truly proud of.’

Cllr. Ryan paid trib­ute to Bríd Collins who has de­cided to re­tire from pol­i­tics for health rea­sons.
