Harding and McKee get FF spots
FIANNA Fáil Councillors Stephen McKee and Wayne Harding have been selected by Fianna Fáil to contest the next local elections on behalf of the Party in East Meath following a Convention held in Slane.
Four candidates put their names forward to Convention with McKee and Harding coming out on top in the votes on the night.
Cllr Stephen McKee stated: ‘I am proud to have been chosen by members of the Party to contest the next local elections on their behalf. I look forward to the campaign and to continuing to represent and serve the people of South Drogheda and East Meath to the best of my ability.’
Cllr Harding, meanwhile, has welcomed a further €1 million funding announced by Transport Infrastructure Ireland in their capital spend for 2019 for the Slane Bypass.
“This is very good news for Slane. Every child that enters Slane National school everyday must share the N2 with heavy traffic of all types. It is becoming intolerable and simply not fair on the villages residents. A route will be announced early in the new year which is good news as the N2 in its entirety is becoming unfit for purpose. It is totally unacceptable that a national primary route should travel through Slane village over a 600 year old bridge with a one way system,’ he said.
The FF convention for East Meath saw Cllrs Harding and McKee nominated.
