The Green Party have selected Johnny Gogan as their candidate in Sligo-North Leitrim. Gogan was unsuccessful in his attempts to win election to Leitrim County Council in the 2004 and 2009 local elections. This is his first general election campaign. He is currently making a film for broadcast later this year about Leitrim's experience of emigration and immigration.
On Tuesday the 15th of February we hit the streets of Sligo to find out how the locals
felt about the issues affecting them.
While talking to people on the street we came across one person with some interesting views. This video
has over 86,000 views on YouTube! Click play below to see what all the fuss is about.
The organisers would thank the students from the Event Management and PR course at IT Sligo for their diligent assistance on the night. Under the direction of Catherine Young were Jemma Clerkin, Tomas Lynn, Shane Brannigan, Helena Moran and Jennifer Kilgannon. We would also like to thank the 3 IT Sligo cameramen on the night: Michael Devaney, James Treanor and John Donnelly.
