Johnny Wall to become 5th Fianna Fail candidate in Tralee.

The former mayor of Tralee Johnny Wall will have to wait until next week before he’s added to the Fianna Fail ticket for the county council elections in the Tralee area. The munster committee of the party had been scheduled to hold a meeting last night, but this was deferred until next Wednesday because Minister Michael Smith was out of the country.The committee under the chair of Michael Smith has the authority from party headquarters to add candidates if they think it’ll boost Fianna Fail’s chances next June. One of their decisions is to put Johnny Wall on as a fifth candidate in Tralee. It was due to be ratified last night, but is now set to be rubber stamped next week.The convention last October picked Charlie farrelly, Norma Foley and Anne Mc ellistrim. Outgoing Cllr Ted Fitzgerald was subsequently added after failing to win a place on the ticket. Meanwhile, Willie Sheehan`s chances of being added to the Fianna Fail ticket in Listowel are looking remote. The Moyvane activist came fourth in the party’s convention last year and the committee hasn’t made any decision about him.
