The Manorhamilton electoral area Fine Gael convention takes place this evening, at which the party will choose its candidates to contest the elections to Leitrim County Council in May.

Three candidates are up for selection – outgoing councillors, Frank Dolan and Sean McDermott, along with newcomer, John Joe Dowdican from Tullaghan.

As yet, there is no indication of the directive from party headquarters as to how many candidates will be selected to run.

The convention will take place in the Bee Park in Manorhamilton.
