Three nominated for Fine Gael election convention

Three candidates have been nominated to contest the upcoming Fine Gael election convention for Cavan/Monaghan.

At the close of nominations, sitting TD and Minister Heather Humphreys, Senator Joe O’Reilly and Councillor Peter McVitty have been put forward to contest the convention on Monday July 23rd.

The selection convention will be held in the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan, where it will be decided who will represent the party in the re-united five seat constituency.

It is yet to be confirmed if Fine Gael will be putting forward all three candidates or if a county-balanced ticket will be chosen for the next election.
