An­thony Moore gets the lo­cal FF nod as he plans route to the Dail

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

THE Fianna Fail candidate se­lec­tion race is hot­ting up, with the South Louth / East Meath comhairle cean­tair hold­ing a spe­cial meet­ing last Mon­day to dis­cuss the con­ven­tion.

The chair­man, Richard Cooney, ad­dressed a room packed with an ex­pec­tant crowd. Mem­bers were de­lighted to meet the lo­cal candidate An­thony Moore (right), who was al­ready fully nom­i­nated and en­ti­tled to con­test the con­ven­tion. An­thony said it was great to see such a crowd and em­pha­sised the need for dis­ci­pline and unity as this would be key to get­ting him elected as the first FF TD for the town since the late Larry Walsh.

He said “For too long Drogheda - Ire­land’s big­gest town - has failed to elect a FF TD. This is our big chance now to rec­tify this and en­sure we have ef­fec­tive, hard-work­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tion for South Louth and East Meath, in­clud­ing Drogheda, in Dail Eire­ann. I’m re­ally de­lighted to have such a cross-sec­tion of sup­port. We will get this nom­i­na­tion and hit the ground run­ning, pounding the pave­ments and knock­ing doors, leav­ing no stone un­turned to get two seats in this con­stituency at the next elec­tion.”
