Voting for new Connacht Chair to start later this month

The election of a new Regional Chairperson for the IFA in Connacht should be known later this month with voting and debating set to start on Monday week the 20th of June in Leitrim.

The two candidates are of course Sligo’s former county Chair Eddie Davitt and the county Chair in Mayo Padraic Joyce.

Voting starts in the Leitrim on the 20th and the two candidates will take place in a head to head debate in each of the counties apart from their own two home counties.

Eddie Davitt is currently busy canvassing in what he says is a very big area and he says despite the fine weather he is hoping that farmers will turn up to those meetings and vote.

If he does succeed in being elected it will be a historic win for a small county like Sligo as he told Ocean FM News earlier.
