Fianna Fail deputy Seamus Kirk has said the party has a team that combines youth and experience as it goes into the local election campaign.
Deputy Kirk was speaking at the local election launch at the Grove House, Dunleer.
“We have a mixed team blended with youth and experience,” he said, “but more importantly we have a team who are hard working and are active in our communities, listening to people and making a difference in people’s lives.
“Louth is now a mix between urban and rural with a number of urban areas including Ardee, Blackrock, Dundalk and Drogheda.
“We believe we have strong candidates who are willing to serve these urban areas, as well as serving the towns and villages of the county including Dromiskin, Collon, Clogherhead, Knockbridge and Tullyallen.
“The candidates selected will make a difference in the community and we feel they will make a difference on Louth County Council.
“Our representatives care for the community and well being of every person in the area.
“I look forward to getting out meeting the people, listening to their concerns and helping our team get elected, so that Louth County Council is represented by people of honesty, fairness and above all selfless dedication and our candidates have these qualities in bucket loads.”
“I wish all candidates well and believe that with a positive approach, and working together, we can and we will make a difference in Louth,” deputy Kirk said.
The candidates selected include: Dundalk-Carlingford: Cllr Conor Keelan and Cllr Peter Savage.
Dundalk South: Cllr Declan Breathnach, Stephen Egan.
