Here's definitive proof that Kenny 'Kenneth' Egan will be 'keeping it real'

If it’s on his campaign literature, then it must be true…


FINE GAEL’S NEWEST recruit, Kenny ‘Kenneth’ Egan, launched his election campaign today as he bids to take a seat in the Clondalkin ward in May’s council elections.

The former boxer and Olympic silver medallist attracted plenty of attention at a media conference in Dublin earlier today.

Here’s his introductory video, courtesy of Fine Gael, where he states: “Everybody knows me as Kenneth Egan… ”

We also got a sneak peek at the leaflets he’ll be stuffing in letterboxes in the south Dublin suburb over the coming months.

As well as quite clearly ‘keeping it real’ Kenny tells us on the literature that he is running because he wants to make a difference in his local community.

Why should you vote for him?

Because he is “innovative, committed and hard working” and has a “proven track record” when it comes to sporting and community involvement.

There you are then.
