A Cllr Conway from Clare has announced that he may leave FG as he has been denied a GE nomination.

I see he appeared a number of times on VB show and seemed to be able to hold his own with Vinnie.    Some FG have appeared on it now, but he was one of the first

Why did he get denied the nomination, was this because of the female Quota ?

Will he be running as a independent?

4 months ago he wasn't planning to seek nomination.

FG say they had to nominate a woman to comply with the quota requirements.

No doubt he will still run as a independent and if he wins he will return to FG.

Perhaps, but in some areas the operation of this quota is causing more problems that it is worth.

When it goes to 40% the brown stuff will really hit the fan
