Councillor Barry O’Neill secures Fine Gael bye-election nomination

Councillor Barry O'Neill has been selected to contest the Donegal South West bye-election for Fine Gael.

He defeated fellow Councillor Martin Harley to secure the nomination.

A packed Highland's Hotel last night heard a rallying call from party leader Enda Kenny who expressed his confidence that the party will be successful in the bye-election for which a date has yet to be set.
