McNamara Poised For General Election Bid

Former Clare Labour TD Michael McNamara is poised to run as an Independent candidate in the next General Election here.

After failing to secure their nomination to run in the European elections, the Scarriff man has left the Labour party, saying he felt that he “wasn’t wanted” by its leadership.

He’s told Clare FM that he has no plans to join another political party, and that he would like to return to the Dáil as an Independent.
