THE Limerick Labour Party has picked its team in the City for the Local Elections with the selection of councillors Conor Sheehan, Elena Secas and Joe Leddin to contest their respective electoral areas of Limerick City North, East and West.

The party will be holding an additional convention after Christmas to select a candidate for the Directly Elected Mayor election.

Speaking after his selection, Cllr Sheehan said: “I am honoured that the members of the Labour Party have put their trust in me again as a candidate. It has been a privilege to serve as Limericks second youngest councillor since 2019. I will be fighting for every single vote between now and June to ensure that we return a strong Labour team to the new Council to deliver the change we need.

“Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil have controlled the Council for ten years and we need change. Politics is about delivering for people and communities and there is much more to do.  My team, and I will work flat out as we have done for the last five years from now until polling day.”

Cllr Secas, who has represented City East for the past nine years, said she is really honoured to be selected to stand again in next June’s Local Election.

“I have tried my best to represent the people of Limerick City East with great commitment and to the best of my abilities, and if re-elected next June, I will continue with the same commitment to champion local issues that matter to us, our families and our communities.”

Cllr Joe Leddin was selected to contest his sixth local election and to continue in the long proud tradition of public service of the Leddin and Keyes family.

“Politics for me has always been about people and the Labour Party and our councillors are always on the ground and not just at election time,” he concluded.
