SINN Fein has selected its council candidates for next year’s local government elections.
There were no surprises as musician Gary Doherty was selected in Stranorlar to run for the seat held by outgoing councillor Cora Harvey.
Mr Doherty revealed his intentions exclusively on Donegal Daily last week.
Another Doherty – this time Albert Doherty – was selected to run in Inishowen alongside sitting councillor Jack Murray and Buncrana town councillor Ciaran McLaughlin.
Six county deputy first Minister Martin McGuinness and the party’s European candidate Matt Carthy were at the Inishowen party convention.
All the other candidatures were uncontested.

In Glenties Electoral area sitting councillor Máire Therese O Gallachóir and John Sheamáis O Fearraigh will run next time around.
In Letterkenny Cllr Mick Quinn and town councillor Gerry McMonagle will seek two seats.
