“People within Fianna Fail were against me” – James Pat Mc Daid


Fianna Fail Councillor James Pat Mc Daid has claimed there were people within the party in Donegal who actively sought to prevent him from running in the forthcoming General Election.

The party confirmed to him on Friday that a third candidate would not be added to the ticket, a decision which Cllr Mc Daid has described as "bitterly disappointing".

He remains convinced a Letterkenny candidate should have been added, but says his commitment to Fianna Fail remaions undiminished, and he will campaign tirelessly in the coming weeks.......
