Kehoe to challenge in Taoiseach's constituency
Sinn Féin has selected Cabra/Glasnevin Councillor Nicky Kehoe to be its general election candidate in Taoiseach Bertie Ahern's Dublin Central constituency.
In last year's local elections, Councillor Kehoe took the second of five seats, polling 2,380 votes. Sinn Féin is mounting a strong challenge for one of the four seats in Dublin Central. Kehoe, a construction worker, was nominated by North Inner City Councillor Christy Burke at a selection convention in Dublin on Sunday, 14 May. Kehoe is pictured here at the opening of the new Sheriff Street Park and Playground in Dublin's north inner city on Monday, 15 May.
