Wick­low group to sup­port Sean Gal­lagher

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

A Wick­low cam­paign group has been es­tab­lished in sup­port of Seán Gal­lagher’s bid for the Pres­i­dency.

The for­mer in­vestor on RTE’s Dragon’s Den was ahead in the polls for the 2011 Pres­i­den­tial race, be­fore los­ing out af­ter the in­fa­mous Tweet­gate in­ci­dent on RTE.

Sean, his wife Tr­ish and their chil­dren Lucy and Bobby moved to the Gar­den County in 2013, firstly set­tling in En­niskerry be­fore mov­ing to Delgany where they cur­rently re­side.

The re­cently formed Wick­low4Sean group held their first meet­ing in Bray last week.

Main or­gan­iser Stephen Kearon said lively dis­cus­sions took place in order to try ad get Mr Gal­lagher as large a vote in County Wick­low as pos­si­ble.

‘We were de­lighted with the large turnout,’ said Mr Kearon.

‘We had peo­ple from Bray to Bal­li­na­clash, Ark­low to Aughrim, Wick­low town to Wood­en­bridge who turned up to as­sist with the cam­paign to have Seán Gal­lagher elected as our next Pres­i­dent.

‘There was a mix­ture of back­grounds. Some are mem­bers of po­lit­i­cal par­ties but most are not. We want Seán to get plenty of Wick­low sup­port, es­pe­cially since he ad his fam­ily have made County Wick­low their home’.

Any­one in­ter­ested can con­tact the group on twit­ter @Wick­low4Sean, Face­book.com/Wick­low4Sean or via the web­site www.wick­low4sean.ie.
