16th West Clare candidate declares


NON party candidate Joseph Enright, who is from Kilrush and lives in Kilmihil, is the 16th candidate to declare for the local elections on May 23, in the enlarged West Clare constituency. He declared for election on Friday, May 2.

The 16 candidates will vie for eight seats.

The former Garda sergeant has an avid interest in the Irish language and is chairperson of Coiste Forbartha Gaeltachta Chontae an Chláir. He says that he is conscious of poverty of depopulation in west Clare though emigration, which Mr Enright claims is “due to a lack of sufficient investment in west Clare, going back to 1922.”

The election candidate is calling the economic situation in west Clare “Operation Catch Up.”
