European election candidate opens city office

FIANNA Fail European election candidate Kieran Hartley has opened an office in Waterford city centre.
Mr Hartley, a well-known anti-pylon campaigner from Fews, Kilmacthomas, was joined by family, friends and party colleagues at the unveiling of his new office on Michael Street recently.
Fianna Fail party leader Micheál Martin was in attendance as were a number of councillors and local election candidates.
Mr Martin wished Mr Hartley every success in the European elections and praised his recent performance on RTE’s ‘The Week in Politics’.
Mr Hartley then joined his party leader on a walk around the city where they met with various locals including some business people.
Mr Hartley will contest the four seat Ireland South constituency for Fianna Fail along with sitting MEP Brian Crowley from Cork.
The 40-year-old is from a well-known business family headed by his father, Ted Hartley, who operated ‘The Book People’.
He is married to Pauline (a native of Co Clare) and they have two children Lia (6) and Rian (2).
After receiving his early education in Butlerstown National School he attended St Paul’s College in Waterford and later Waterfor College of Further Education.
“I have a vision and a determination to do things differently on behalf of the people,” said Mr Hartley.
“That is why I want to get into the European Parliament as a Fianna Fáil MEP to ensure that ordinary people in Ireland South have a voice and together we can make a real difference.”
The local and European elections take place on Friday May 23rd.
