Louth County Councillor Colm Markey will replace Mairead McGuinness as MEP for the Midlands-Northwest constituency.

Mr Markey was first elected to Louth County Council in 2009 and is a former President of Macra na Feirme.

He's been nominated to replace Mairead McGuinness, following the announcement that she's Ireland's European Commissioner-designate.

Councillor Markey says his background is in agriculture, so working on the crucial area of Brexit to secure the interests of Irish agriculture, fisheries, export businesses and the wider economy is vitally important to him.
