Kildare Naas area: Latest updates

Fianna Fail's Robert Power, who has just been elected in the Naas District, represents the third generation of Powers to be elected to Kildare County Council.

His father Sean and grandfather Paddy (and his uncle JJ who was elected for the Green Party) also served on Kildare County Council. Sean and Paddy also went on to be TD's and hold ministerial positions. Will Robert emulate them? Time will tell. Meanwhile Sean Power, who lost his Dail seat at the last election, is looking likely to get a seat in the Newbridge District, although he will have to wait for a few more counts.
