Its a case of bad news & good news for the Limerick city electorate.
First the bad news.
According to tomorrows edition of the Limerick Post, Clr Kevin Kiely is to seek the FG nomination for the next general election. He is quoted extensively in the article. Limerick FF must be having a right good laugh.
But there is also some good news today for the Limerick electorate.
Clare's clr Cathal Crowe (Willie O'Dea's biggest, bestest, most loyal handmaiden) promised in this week's Clare Champion that he would never run for election in Limerick against his beloved Willie O'Dea.
"Councillor Crowe has pledged, however, that he would never contest a general election in Limerick East on the same ticket as Deputy Willie O’Dea.
Both have run clinics together in South-East Clare and almost adopted a joint approach when it came to dealing with some of the main political issues in the district.
“I am a Clare public representative and I am not going to run in a general election against Willie O’Dea."
"How may I serve thee Oh Lord. By the way, tough luck with that High Court evidence thing"
