Larkin declines to comment on solo run speculation

Donegal Councillor Dessie Larkin is refusing to comment on speculation that he may contest the next general election as an independent.

Cllr Larkin is not among the four Fianna Fail nominees who will go forward to convention in Donegal North East early in the new year, and that has fuelled local talk of a possible solo run.

Speaking to Highland Radio news this morning, Cllr Larkin said he is a member of Fianna Fail and he intends to remain a member of the party.

However, he stressed at this point, he is not commenting on what may happen in the future........
