Independent Monaghan Councillor announces reelection bid

Independent Councillor in Monaghan Seamus Treanor has announced his intention to contest the local elections. First elected to the County Council in 2009, he’s become well-known for his views on immigration and migrants.

He’s announced his candidacy for the local elections on May 24th saying “there’s no difference between all the four main parties”, with the same views on immigration, housing, taxation and carbon taxes.

He’s to campaign on a platform of opposing carbon taxes, what he’s described as “uncontrolled immigration” and on calls for the reopening of a 24 hour A&E at Monaghan Hospital.
