Sinn Féin councillor  Toiréasa Ferris says she will not contest the next general election.

The county councillor was selected in December 2017 to run for the party in Kerry at the next general election after her father, Deputy Martin Ferris, announced he would not run again for the Dáil.

She informed party members at a meeting in Tralee last night.

Cllr Toireasa Ferris outlines the reasons for her decision.

Toireasa Ferris will continue as a Kerry County Councillor.

Sinn Féin will hold a selection convention in August to choose a Dáil candidate to run in Kerry at the next general election.
