Fine Gael /Sinn Fein alliance a possibility.

One of the newly-elected Fine Gael councillors says an alliance with Sinn Fein is a possibility. Five years ago, Fine Gael refused to enter discussions with Sinn Fein because decommissioning hadn’t taken place. Fianna Fail has lost one seat which opens up an opportunity for the opposition parties and independents to come together. 14 votes are needed to control the Council. Listowel Cllr Tim Buckley says a deal with Sinn Fein could happen.
