Wicklow Fine Gael Councillor Nominated By His Party For Seanad Seat

Former Cathaoirleach of Wicklow Municipal District Shay Cullen has been nominated by the Fine Gael party in Wicklow as their candidate for national selection for the Seanad.

He was proposed by the outgoing Minister of state, Andrew Doyle, who confirmed that he was not seeking a seat in the Seanad, while outgoing Minister for Health Simon Harris has endorsed the nomination.

Deputy Cullen, who lives in Newtownmountkennedy, was a poll topper in the local elections last year when he secured more than 2,200 votes.

Last week Fianna Fail’s former TD in Wicklow Pat Casey announced  that he would be seeking a Seanad seat.
