Cllr Long would be considered a certainty to win a seat, living as she does in the Mooncoin area. It remains to be seen if she will be added to the ticket by HQ. There are only three female candidates confirmed for the 24 seat council elections in 2014, Cllrs Mary Hilda Kavanagh, Kathleen Funchion and Fidelis Doherty. For more see opinion piece on Page 33.
