Eamon and Maria join the local Renua team
Local man Eamon Sweeney has been selected to contest the 2019 local elections for Renua. The former LMFM presenter is Renua Ireland's spokesperson on agriculture and he will be running in the Drogheda East Rural area.
As a Peace Commissioner and having lived all his life in the Drogheda rural area he has a good understanding of the issues that are important there.
If elected Eamon believes it is important to be available if needed and he is looking forward to meeting the voters in his area during the forthcoming campaign.
Maria McCabe has also been selected by Renua to run in the Drogheda Urban area.
Maria is an active disability campaigner and is also committed to representing young people on the Council.
'It's time for fresh thinking and new faces on the Council. I have spent my entire life overcoming obstacles and campaigning on issues and will not back away from a challenge. I am really looking forward to the campaign and adding a new voice to the debate about Drogheda.'
Euro candidate Michael O'Dowd said he was delighted to be part of 'Team Drogheda ' and that he is convinced that the people of Drogheda will respond in a very positive manner when details of Renuas local government and European Election policies are announced and when they get a chance to meet the candidates.
