Galway Bay fm newsroom – Re-elected Loughrea Area Councillor Michael Fahy says he will not rule out a return to the Fianna Fail party.
The Ardrahan based independent councillor says he’s considering a return to the party he represented for 25 years.
Cllr Fahy was elected as a Fianna Fail representative in 1979, 1985, 1991, 1999 and 2004.
He later left the party and was elected as an independent councillor in 2009.
The Ardrahan man was elected again on the eighth and final count for the Loughrea district at Bailey Allen Hall in NUIG on Sunday night.
He received 1437 votes on the first count and had secured 1790 votes by the final count to secure his seat once again.
Speaking to Galway Bay fm news after his election, Cllr Fahy did not rule out a return to Fianna Fail.
He also spoke about his past dedication to the party:
If Cllr Fahy is readmitted to Fianna Fail, it would significantly alter the balance of power within the new county council.
Fianna Fail would then hold 13 seats, Fine Gael with 12 seats, with 10 independents, one Republican Sinn Fein and three Sinn Fein seats.
Fianna Fail held just seven seats in the previous council while Fine Gael held 13.
