Fianna Fail headquarters has confirmed it has received a complaint from a Kerry councillor following the recent South and West Kerry Municipal District AGM.

His party colleague Cllr Michael Cahill nominated Independent Cllr Dan McCarthy for the position and was successful.

Cllr O’Shea claims Cllr Cahill’s actions broke party rules; this is denied by Cllr Cahill.
