image preview

Last night sitting Mayo Fine Gael TD John O’Mahony announced his intention to seek a nomination to run in the Galway West constituency in the next General Election. The decision by the TD who has been elected twice in Mayo, in 2007 and 2011, had been expected after a large swathe of his territory had been annexed by the Galway constituency following the 2012 Constituency Commission report. The changes also saw Mayo drop from a five seater constituency to a four seater constituency.

Martin looks to new life in the party in Mayo

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin will wrap up his two day tour of Mayo today, with engagements in Ballina, Knock Airport, Claremorris, and Ballinrobe. In south Mayo he will meet with local representatives and current Galway West TD Eamon O Cuiv, who will see a large part of south Mayo come into his constituency. Speaking to the press yesterday, Martin was hopeful of seeing the party grow again in Mayo. “I remember when I was here last time, at a major meeting it was the strongest and largest crowd in numbers that turned out,” he said. “We have a strong councillor base, not what it was before, but it’s stronger than in a lot of other counties.

Kennedy, Diana, 9/11 and O’Cuiv’s monumental decision

There are among you people who can remember exactly where you were when Kennedy was shot down in Dallas, when Diana died in that tunnel in Paris, where you heard about the horrors of 9/11, when Michael Jackson was rushed by ambulance to the hospital in Los Angeles.

Volvo news is our Olympics

The confirmation last evening of the story that we brought you first last week, that Galway is to host the final leg of the Volvo Ocean Race in 2012, brings to an end a remarkable series of negotiations that have concluded with a tremendous fillip for everyone here in the west. With the state of the economy and few lights on the horizon, the promise of this remarkable event is something that the entire region can plan around for the next two years.

Local FF anger won’t mean a thing

Galway’s Fianna Fáil faithful are a bit pissed (No, there’s not another think-in today). We mean angry, and not at Brian Cowen’s fairly lacklustre performance as Taoiseach, or the health service, or the global financial crisis. No, the boys on the ground are annoyed at a new TD coming on board.
