Donegal’s Presidential hopeful Kevin Sharkey is one of those pitching to Carlow County Council today.

Candidates need four local councils, or 20 TDs or Senators to support them in order to run.

This afternoon artist Kevin Sharkey, Independent Senator Joan Freeman, businessman Gavin Duffy, former Aer Lingus worker Patrick Feeney and Athlone woman Marie Goretti Moylan will make their pitches to the council.
