Patrick McKee to consider his future with Renua

Kilkenny Renua Councillor Patrick McKee says he’s going to take some time to consider his future with the party.

Renua failed to get any of the 26 candidates they ran elected to the Dáil in the weekend’s General Election.

Party-leader, Lucinda Creighton, also lost her seat and is now looking to hand over the reigns to another member.

In Carlow/Kilkenny, Councillor McKee managed to secure just 2 and a half thousand first preference votes.

When asked by KCLR whether or not he thinks his future lies with Renua, Councillor McKee was reluctant to give a definitive answer.

He left Fianna Fail in 2015 and was announced as the Renua candidate for the Carlow/Kilkenny by-election a short time afterwards.
