A Sligo Fianna Fail Councillor says he will run as an Independent candidate in next year's local elections, if he cannot represent Fianna Fail.

Councillor Joe Queenan has confirmed that he received an email from party headquarters yesterday to say his name will not be going forward for the Fianna Fail selection convention for the Ballymote/Tubbercurry area, while an investigation is underway by SIPO - the Standards in Public Office Commission.

Councillor Queenan faced counts of breaching ethics' legislation following an undercover investigation by the RTE Investigates Programme.

While this process is ongoing, Councillor Queenan told Midwest News he cannot contest next year's local elections for Fianna Fail, but will run as an Independent candidate otherwise.....
