Green Party Confirms It's Clare Councillor Is To Leave The Party | clare.fm
A massive blow to the Greens as one of their only remaining reps and a man held in high regards. His more to join Fianna Fáil though I find odd. Has he not being very critical of them in the past or am I mistaken? Could be a big boost to FF in Clare as Hillery (IMO) will never win them a second seat, despite his showing last time (core FF vote in Clare is the strongest and he couldn't capitalise). Meaney only polled 2.2% himself though last time out as well. What do posters feel?
