Fianna Fáil’s National Constituencies Committee has confirmed the addition of Cllr Suzanne Doyle to the ticket in the Kildare South constituency. She joins sitting TD and Spokesperson on Equality, Integration and Immigration Fiona O’Loughlin.

Cllr Doyle was co-opted to Kildare County Council in 2003 to replace Seán Ó Fearghaíl following the abolition of the dual mandate. She successfully held her seat in the 2004, 2009 and 2014 local elections. Suzanne lives in Kildare Town and runs the family business, the Five Jockeys pub.
