Here’s What The New Kerry County Council Looks Like

NOW that the dust has settled after a hectic weekend, the 33 councillors who will meet at Kerry County Council on June 7 has been decided.

Fianna Fáil is now the largest party with 10 seats, up one from the 2014 local elections. Fine Gael did not have a good day at the polls with just seven candidates elected, down two on 2014.
