Tipp’s Election Candidates selected

Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael have selected their first candidates in Tipperary to contest the next General Election.

Jackie Cahill – a sitting TD in the county swept to victory at Fianna Fáil’s selection convention on Friday night after securing well over the quota on the first count.
