Seven Dublin Fianna Fáil representatives were selected to represent the party members on the party’s National Executive.
Thousands of delegates attended the party’s Ard Fheis in the RDS at the weekend. They voted to elect Mary Byrne (Dublin Bay South) Lorraine Clifford (Dublin Fingal), Kate Feeney (Dun Laoghaire), Jennifer Cuffe (Dun Laoghaire) and Alan Bracken (Dublin Bay North) to the Fianna Fáil Ard Comhairle.
Dublin Rathdown general election candidate Senator Mary White was also appointed as party Vice President and party members also re-elected Kathryn Byrne from Dublin Bay South as a Vice President of Fianna Fáil.
Party Leader Micheál Martin has congratulated the successful candidates.
“The strong Dublin representation on the new Ard Comhairle shows the firm commitment of Fianna Fáil members to refocussing on our position in the capital. There was an extremely tough competition for these important roles and I am delighted that a great mix of Dublin members were elected,” said Deputy Martin.
“Party members have elected a mix of young, new faces and more experienced members from a range of backgrounds across Dublin to represent them on the party’s National Executive. They will each bring energy, vision, a wealth of ideas and their own personal experiences to their roles on our governing council.
“Providing a stronger voice to our grassroots members has been a key priority in Fianna Fáil’s renewal process. It is crucial that our members in the capital have the strong representation they deserve within the party while key policy decisions are made. I know that Kathryn, Mary White, Mary Byrne, Lorraine, Kate, Jennifer and Alan will ensure this. I very much look forward to working closely with them over the coming months as we prepare for a general election.”
