Local election candidates joined the pupils of Scoil Cholmcille, Letterkenny yesterday for a morning of laughter and political discussion.
Cllr. Ciaran Brogan, Cllr. Jimmy Kavanagh, Cllr. Gerry Mc Monagle, Ms. Mary T Sweeney and Ms. Thoiba Ahmed were fiercely grilled as pupils from Mr. Kavanagh and Mr. Mc Gowan’s fourth classes worked hard in preparation for the event.
Experienced Letterkenny returning officer, Mr. Eunan Kelly was on hand to assist the pupils as they emptied the ballot boxes, counted the ballot papers, eliminated candidates and redistributed their votes.
The pupils can now look forward to their upcoming school trip to Dáil Éireann over the coming weeks with a greater understanding of the Irish Electoral System.Tags:
