Kerry County Councillor Patrick O’Connor Scarteen is running in the upcoming Seanad elections.
The Fine Gael Councillor was nominated by the Association of Advertisers in Ireland, and will contest the Industrial and Commercial Panel.
The South Kerry man was first elected to Kerry County Council in 2009, and held the role of Deputy Mayor of Kerry in 2017.
He’s the fourth Kerry person who is confirmed to run for a seat in the Seanad.
Two outgoing Senators, Mark Daly and Ned O’Sullivan, both of Fianna Fáil, have announced they’ll be seeking re-election.
Former TD Thomas McEllistrim has also announced he will be bidding for a seat.
