Foley to enter race for Dail seat in Kerry North

Norma Foley does not believe the Fianna Fail vote in North Kerry will be split if both she and Tom McEllistrim run as candidates for the party in the next general election. The Tralee councillor has announced her intention to seek the Fianna Fail nomination at the party convention in September. The former Mayor of Kerry, Cllr Ned O’Sullivan, and Cllr John Brassil have already declared their candidacy, while Deputy McEllistrim is also expected to run. Cllr Foley is confident of securing the nomination and should that happen, she says she will attract much support outside her Tralee-base.
