The former Chairman of the Labour Party in Donegal has entered the election race as a Independent candidate for the Letterkenny/Milford area.
Peter Cutliffe quit the Labour Party in November last year.
At the time he said he felt the Labour party represented the people. He also took issue with the fact that at that time, there was talk of Senator Jimmy Harte’s wife going forward as a local election candidate for the party.
Last week, her brother Christy Galligan was selected as a candidate for the party, along with previous candidate Siobhan Mc Laughlin.
Mr Cutliffe says his decision to run was reached after much thought...........
