The recently retired Chair of Carlow Community Games says housing’s a key issue for him in the upcoming local elections.
Former winner at the inaugural Cathaoirleach Awards with the local authority, Paul Doogue is running for Fine Gael in the Carlow electoral area.

Speaking to The KCLR Daily a short time ago Paul outlined the challenges people face – hear that conversation in full here.
Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil selected four more people to contest the local elections in the Tullow and Bagenalstown areas of Carlow – more on that here.
