Tom Mc Ellistrim speaks out on election result

Fianna Fail TD Tom mc Ellistrim says he’s not to blame for Dan Kiely losing his council seat. The former senator was edged out by Fine Gael`s Liam Purtill and Sinn Fein`s Robert Beasley yesterday evening. Deputy Mc Ellistrim had backed the addition of Moyvane activist Willie Sheehan to the ticket. Mr Sheehan polled an impressive one thousand and twenty votes, but there was a poor transfer to Dan kiely. Tom Mc Ellistrim says any fault lies with the party’s strategy committee.
