Taoiseach: No plans to hold Donegal by-election soon
TAOISEACH Brian Cowen has told Donegal-based Highland Radio he has no immediate plans for a by-election in Donegal South-West, where Sinn Féin Senator Pearse Doherty will be challenging for the seat.
The seat has been vacant for the past year following the election of Pat the Cope Gallagher to the European Parliament.
Speaking to Highland Radio news during a visit to County Donegal on Friday, the Taoiseach said Donegal was currently well represented.
