Fianna Fáil has today completed its General Election ticket in Dublin South West with the addition of Cllr. Deirdre O’Donovan.

The decision was made following a meeting of the party’s National Constituencies Committee.   

 Commenting on her selection today, Cllr O’Donovan said: “I’m honoured to contest the General Election in Dublin South West for Fianna Fáil. We have an extremely strong ticket, and I am looking forward to working with my colleagues Deputy John Lahart and Cllr. Charlie O’Connor.

 “I am originally from Tallaght and now a proud Knocklyon native for the past 15 years and have been working in the locality as a Councillor and community activist for many years. I’m looking forward to continuing that work as a Fianna Fáil representative and securing a seat in the next General Election.”

“There are a range of issues affecting people living in Dublin South West and I will work alongside my Fianna Fáil colleagues to deliver on key issues such as childcare, internet safety for children and affordable housing for young families” concluded Cllr. O’Donovan
