DONEGAL Senator Brían Ó Domhnaill has today announced that he will not be seeking a Fianna Fáil nomination to contest the General Election in the newly-formed Donegal Constituency.
In a letter addressed to party members, the senator said: “I have decided over the summer months not to seek a nomination to contest the forthcoming General Election.
“In recent weeks I have been strongly encouraged by party membership in Donegal to see a nomination to contest the General Election; However, despite this, a nomination will not be sought and instead I will pledge all of my time and energy on my work in Seanad Éireann.
“The next General Election represents a crossroads for our country’s future. The public has rightly demanded enhanced political oversight and a new way for how politics is administered.
“Consequently, I believe that Fianna Fáil can provide the fresh, new faces that are so strongly needed by fielding new candidates in the next General Election.”
