Councillor Michael Clarke is contesting the general election as an independent candidate in Sligo-North Leitrim. The Dromore-based publican and farmer was elected as a member of Sligo County Council in June 2009, topping the polls in the Dromore electoral area. Clarke had previously stood as a Fianna Fáil candidate in the area in the local elections of 1991 and 1999.
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.
