The local branch of Fianna Fáil has yet to receive word from party headquarters over its demand for a date for the constituency’s convention.
The constituency is now the only one in the country without a Fianna Fail candidate selected.
The Roscommon-Galway Comhairle Dáil Ceantair (CDC) had recently written to headquarters demanding that a date be set for the convention, after members became frustrated with the delay in holding a convention. A two-week time frame was given to name a day, and, if no date was set after that, the local party work would begin work on holding a convention in the constituency itself.
Mary Clifford, Honorary Secretary Roscommon-Galway Comhairle Dáil Ceantair (CDC), told the Roscommon Herald that no response has been received on the issue. “To my knowledge as of this time, party headquarters has given no date,” she said. However, she stressed that today, November 24th was the deadline given. “If no date is given, members will make contact with each other and meet to discuss a course of action.”
Fianna Fáil HQ was contacted for a comment but none was received by the time of going to print.
