Nestor Replacement On Council To Be Revealed Next Week

The replacement for former Ennis Fianna Fail Councillor Mark Nestor on Clare County Council is to be revealed early next week.

It’s understood a selection convention is to be held by the party next Sunday evening to co-opt a new Council member, with Mr Nestor having resigned his seat in September to begin training for the priesthood.

Four candidates are in the running for the seat – former Ennis Chamber President Darragh McAllister, former Councillor Bernard ‘Bomber’ Hanrahan, postmaster Tom O’ Callaghan and former local election candidate Amanda Major.



Mr McAllister says if chosen, he’ll seek to retain the seat in 2024’s local elections.
