Kinnegad: Meet the Candidates

Current councillors Frank McDermott, Paddy Hill and John Shaw have chosen not to run in this year’s election which opens up the Kinnegad LEA for new voices. This has perhaps led to the unusually high number of 16 candidates running in the area which is the highest in the county.

Nine female candidates and seven male candidates are running in Kinnegad. Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Sinn Féin have three candidates each running in Kinnegad.

There is one independent candidate running in the Kinnegad LEA. Independent Ireland, Ireland First, Labour, The Irish People, Aontú and Green Party all have one candidate each running. There is also one independent candidate running. Two current councillors are running in the Kinnegad LEA.
