Former councillor and candidate in the Listowel Electoral Area, Dan Kiely, who missed out on a seat by just two votes in the May 2014 election is taking the case. He mounted a legal challenge following a decision by the returning officer not to allow him examine spoiled votes as part of a recount. Former Tánaiste Michael McDowell, barrister Liz Murphy and solicitor Paul O’Donoghue make up Mr Kiely’s legal team. The case has the potential to impact on election law.
