Rise of Harris vacates county council seat
THE ELECTION OF former county councillor Simon Harris to Dáil Eireann has left an open spot on Wicklow County Council.
From the Greystones Electoral Area, Simon must now be replaced by an agreed member of Fine Gael. Leader of the Fine Gael branch of Wicklow County Council, Cllr. George Jones, said the Greystones branch of Fine Gael will be holding its selection convention on Fri- day night in Shoreline Leisure Centre, Greystones where two candidates, Grainne McLoughlin and Cllr. James O'Sullivan, will battle it out for the seat.
Grainne is a former town councillor and has been a driving force behind Wicklow and Greystones entry in the LivCom Awards. James currently sits on Greystones Town Council and is one of the youngest members of the town council.
