Senator David Norris this evening secured his fourth and final nomination to contest the Irish Presidential Election.

Dublin City Council joined Fingal County Council, Laois County Council and Waterford City Council and gave a nomination to the Senator.

Senator Norris took the longest to get a nomination due to withdrawing earlier in the race and then re-entering. How this will pan out during the campaign will be interesting.

He along with Dana Rosemary Scallon both secured their nominations from councils and join independents Mary Davis and Sean Gallagher, Michael D Higgins of Labour, Gay Mitchell of Fine Gael and Martin McGuinness of Sinn Fein on the ballot

This brings the official number of candidates to seven. The campaign officially gets under way at midday tomorrow.

 

So let the games commence
