New constituency office for Blackpool

Thursday, 9th November, 2017 9:28am

Blackpool-based Cllr John Sheehan official launched his new constituency office in the village recently.

It comes several months after the local GP threw his hat in the ring for a nomination to run in the next general election for the Fianna Fáil party.

His party mate Cllr Kenneth O’Flynn has also put himself in the running in the same constituency and there’s speculation that the current Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Tony Fitzgerald will contest it too.

If true, that’s three Fianna Fáil councillors who will be vying for the nod from the party to run in the next general election.

Deputy Billy Kelleher is a sitting Fianna Fáil TD in the same constituency, Cork North-Central.

Cllr Sheehan’s new office, located opposite the church in Blackpool, is the former office of Deputy Mick Barry when the Solidarity TD was a Cork city councillor.

At the opening, Cllr John Sheehan welcomed Fianna Fáil party leader Micheál Martin as well as Deputy Billy Kelleher and host of city and county councillors.

Cllr Sheehan said: “It is wonderful to finally have an office in the heart of Blackpool to hear the concerns and queries of the constituents.

“It is a great honour to have Micheál Martin here for the official launch as well as my fellow city council colleagues and my county council counterparts.

“I hope that the office will serve the people of the ward and if I can be of any assistance please don’t hesitate to call or drop in,” he added.
