Sitting Roscommon/Galway Fianna Fail TD Eugene Murphy was last night selected by the party to stand for the party in the next General Election.

Deputy Murphy was unanimously selected and ratified to be the single candidate for the party in the constituency.

In advance of the convention, Fianna Fail headquarters had issued a directive that only one candidate was to be selected, and after the three other candidates who initially accepted nominations withdrew, the sitting TD was unopposed.

Over 200 people turned out to the convention in the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon town, which was chaired by Mayo TD Dara Calleary.
