Tom Fleming

Constituency: Kerry South

Former Fianna Fáil councillor Tom Fleming has declared that he will contest the upcoming general election as an independent candidate in Kerry South. First elected in 1991, Fleming has served as one of Killarney's representatives on Kerry County Council for the past twenty years. In 2002 and 2007, he contested the general elections as the running mate of John O'Donoghue, narrowly missing out on a seat on both occasions. Widely expected to contest the party's nomination convention in Kerry South, Fleming withdrew his name shortly before the poll took place, declaring his intention to run independently.
