Long-serving Roscommon FF County Councillor Rachel Doherty has confirmed she will not be contesting next year's local elections.

A daughter of former Roscommon Fianna Fail TD and Senator Séan Doherty, she was first elected to Roscommon County Council for the Boyle electoral area in 2004, and was re-elected in 2009 and 2014.

Rachel Doherty says she is not in a position to serve for another term, due to her increasing work committments in Fáilte Ireland.

In a statement, she said the workload of a county councillor has become more demanding in recent years, and is now essentially a full-time job.
