The Donegal Democrat has learned that Claudia Kennedy has been added to the Fianna Fail ticket in the Finn Valley where she will join party colleagues Cllr. Patrick McGowan and Cllr. Gerry Crawford in an attempt to get three seats for the party in the Local Elections.
A school teacher in the Finn Valley College, Claudia is a member of the party National Executive and is deeply involved with Ogra Fail. She recently put herself forward for selection in the Donegal Electoral Area where she was defeated by the veteran politician Cllr. Sean McEniff.
A senior Fianna Fail politician told the Donegal Democrat, “Claudia Kennedy is a rising star in the party and would have strong support in the Finn Valley area. She has built herself a high profile in the area and has remained loyal to the grass roots through good times and bad.
“She will present a formidable challenge and could very well gain that extra seat for the party.”
