Galway County: Fianna Fail bonanza
IN Galway County Fianna Fail look set for a local election bonanza with improved results right across the county.
Michael Connolly and Donal Burke picked up two of the six Ballinasloe seats for the party, while Independent candidates Tim Broderick, Jim Cuddy, James Charity and Tom Welby also picked up seats in the county.
Fine Gael performed steadily in Galway County and picked up a minimum of two seats in each district, while the news was not as positive for their coalition partners Labour who looked unlikely to take any seat in the county.
