Following the decision of James Breen (IND) not to contest next year’s General Election, and the emergence of Richard Cahill (IND) as a candidate, the Independent line-up for the election has begun to take shape. With poll’s suggesting that Clare could return at least one Independent, The Clare People is taking the temperature of the county and finding out which Independent is best place to enter Dail Eireann next year.
At present both Cllr Ann Norton and former European Election Candidate Richard Cahill have confirmed their candidacy while Cllr Ian Lynch and Cllr Gerry Flynn are expected to come forward in the new year. But who has the support to challenge the sitting TD’s for their seats?
The Clare People Online Poll will run until midday, Monday November 23. The votes are restricted to one vote per IP address (internet connection), so multiple votes from the same device will not be accepted.
