Longford does not need another FF or FG TD, that was the firm message from the National Party's general election candidate, James Reynolds.

Mr Reynolds said the Fianna Fáil (Joe Flaherty) or Fine Gael (Micheál Carrigy) would be totally out of their depth outside the Council.

"Longford desperately needs a TD who will be more than mere party lobby-fodder."

James Reynolds, a National Party candidate from Ballinalee and former Longford IFA county chairman, is running on a platform of rural regeneration, opposition to carbon tax, and to prioritise the Irish people’s interests.

He said: “James Reynolds has never been afraid to speak out on the issues which effect ordinary people, from my experiences in farming politics to national politics.

"Unlike Carrigy or Flaherty, I will not be lobby-fodder. Only a vote for Reynolds is a vote to deal effectively with Longford’s problems. There is no alternative”.
