Six Presidential election hopefuls have made their pitches to Clare County Councillors, as they seek their backing in a bid to contest next month’s vote.
Peter Casey, Gemma O’Doherty, Sarah Louise Mulligan, Senator Joan Freeman, Kevin Sharkey and Sean Gallagher all addressed the Councillors, and those gathered in the public gallery, as to why they feel they should get the all-important nomination.
Gavin Duffy was among those who sent apologies for being unable to attend.
