A new candidate from Cashel electoral area has signed up to run in the local elections, for a seat on the new Tipperary County Council.
Fine Gael’s Executive Council has confirmed that Colm Taylor, from Lisloran, Cashel, has been added to the 2014 elections, according to Fine Gael general secretary, Tom Curran.
Twenty-three-year-old Colm, who has a strong track-record in the voluntary sector, joins councillors John Crosse, Michael Fitzgerald, Mary Hannah Hourigan and Eoghan Lawrence on the Fine Gael ticket.
He is a past pupil of Cashel Community School and graduated from University of Limerick last year with a degree in History, Politics and Public Administration. Colm is currently studying agriculture in Kildalton College, with the intention of farming full-time on the family farm at Lisloran. Colm is also PRO of the Clonoulty Rossmore Macra club, a senior player at Cashel Rugby Football Club, a member of Kickham GAA Club and a member of County Tipperary Golf and Country Club.
