Growing speculation that John McGuinness could be next Ceann Comhairle

There’s growing speculation that local Fianna Fail Deputy John McGuinness could be Ceann Comhairle in the next Dail.

The position will be decided by a secret ballot when members of the 32nd Dail gather at Leinster House next Thursday.

Bagenalstown Fianna Fail Councillor Arthur McDonald says he doesnt think that a vote would affect McGuinness’s chances of getting the role.
