GLENTIES ELECTORAL AREA

By Harry Walsh

THE Ó Domhnaill name was top of the poll in the Glenties Electoral Area for the third time in a row yesterday as Seamus Ó Domhnaill led home the fourteen strong field.
The young 33-year-old Gortahork man, who topped the poll as an Independent in 2009, was back wearing the Fianna Fáil colours this time around. His older brother, Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill was the poll topper in 2004.
He will be joined in Lifford by Maire Therese Gallagher (SF), her party colleague John Shéamuis Ó Fearraigh, Enda Bonner (FF) and Micheál Cholm MacGiolla Easbuig (Independent) with the final seat going to outgoing councillor Terence Slowey (FG).
