Councillor Aisling Dolan will contest the next General Election in the Roscommon-Galway constituency as a Fine Gael candidate.

At a meeting of Fine Gael’s Executive Council last night, Cllr Dolan was added to the constituency ticket to run alongside Senator Maura Hopkins.

Cllr Dolan, based in East Galway, said it will be an honour and a privilege to have an opportunity to contest the Roscommon-Galway constituency in the upcoming election.

Cllr Dolan comes from a farming background based in Poolboy, East Galway and Ballydangan, Moore, south Roscommon.

She is currently a project manager at NUI Galway working in Health Innovation with start-ups in medtech and people from the HSE.
