Mark O'Regan

THE sister of the late Finance Minister Brian Lenihan has been beaten by a Fianna Fail rival in the race to contest the seat formerly held by her brother at the Dublin West by-election.

Teacher David McGuinness was selected as the candidate ahead of Anita Lenihan, a qualified barrister, who declined to contest the seat in 2011 after her brother's death.
