Fine Gael members at last night's Longford selection convention in the Longford Arms Hotel

Fine Gael have chosen four candidates to stand for election in the Longford Municipal District at next year's local elections.

Sitting Councillors John Browne, Peggy Nolan and Gerry Hagan were selected alongside Gerry Cooney following a selection convention which was held last night in the Longford Arms Hotel.

The party are targeting at least three seats in the Longford area with Cllr Hagan, who is currently an elected member in the Granard Municipal District, switching to electoral areas in a bid to press home that aim.

Fianna Fáíl, meanwhile, are also hosting a number of conventions over the coming days also as the clock winds down to next May's local elections.
