Galway Bay fm newsroom – Galway East TD Colm Keaveney is to meet with Fianna Fáil delegates in the constituency in the coming weeks after being approved to join the party.

In the short term the former Labour chairman and more recently Independent TD is to write to the 700 delegates in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Fianna Fáil comhairle Dáil cheantair in Galway East says there is ‘no deal done’ in relation to the upcoming general election.

Eamon Gilligan says Colm Keaveney, like everyone else, will have to go through a convention and win over delegates.

The parliamentary party approved Colm Keaveney’s bid to join the party yesterday and he now joins Fianna Fail TD Michael Kitt in the Galway East constituency.

Speaking on Galway Talks, Eamon Gilligan says Colm Keaveney understands he will have to work hard to get his place on the ticket.
