Councillor Tony McLoughlin is one of two Fine Gael candidates standing in Sligo-North Leitrim. McLoughlin has been active in local politics in the Sligo area since the 1970s and has served four separate terms as the Mayor of Sligo. In the 2009 local elections, McLoughlin secured nearly 25 per cent of first-preference votes.
On Tuesday the 15th of February we hit the streets of Sligo to find out how the locals

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.
