LE19: Last week of campaigning gets underway

In election news this Monday, Fianna Fáil candidate Francis McDermott says he has two main goals if elected to Cavan County Council.

The Bailieborough-Cootehill candidate says roads across the region need immediate attention but the Main Street in Shercock needs serious work carried out on it.

He also says illegal dumping is causing soon to be irreversible damage to our environment and it needs to be addressed now to protect the environment for future generations.


Independent candidate in Monaghan Municipal District Seamus Treanor is calling on the Minister for Health to reverse the introduction of charges for disability and elderly service users locally.

The charges were introduced in recent weeks and have been met with criticism from across the region.

Seamus Treanor is calling on Monaghan Municipal District to write to the Minister, calling for a reversal of the charges.


Ballyjamesduff candidate Craig Lovett says his main concerns are childcare, mental health and employment and investment.

The Fianna Fáil candidate has pledged to work on those issues if elected to Cavan County Council on Friday.

He narrowly missed out on a seat in the 2014 election.
