Fine Gael has selected Ballaghaderreen based Senator Maura Hopkins to contest the next General Election for the party in the Roscommon-Galway constituency.
The convention took place at Gleeson’s in Roscommon town last night.
Two names went forward for consideration at the convention – Senator Hopkins and Councillor Michael Finnerty.
It is understood that while Senator Hopkins was selected, Councillor Finnerty will be added to the ticket at a later date.
Cllr Finnerty last stood in a General Election 30 years ago and will contest the local elections next month in the Ballinasloe Municipal District.
