Fianna Fail is winning back former councillors

Fianna Fail in Tipperary has this week welcomed Councillor Kieran Bourke back into the fold, to hold the dominant position on Tipperary County Council and speculation is now rife that others may follow in the coming months, writes Noel Dundon.

Councillor Bourke was one of seven ex-Fianna Fail members currently sitting on Tipperary County Council and his departure from the party to stand as an Independent, when he failed to get a nomination at the selection convention of 2014, raised some eyebrows.

Now, others could be set to follow his return to the party fold - FF is now the dominant party on Tipperary County Council.
