Noel Grealish

Constituency: Galway West
Date of Birth: 16/12/1965

Former PD leader Noel Grealish is set to seek re-election in Galway West as an independent candidate. Grealish was elected in 2007 as a Progressive Democrat but, following the dissolution of the party in 2009, decided to remain independent as a deputy. He withdrew his support for the Fianna Fáil-Green coalition in September 2010 after three years of support, stating that he could not support them in good faith while swingeing cuts to the health sector were proposed.
