Three councillors attended all ninety nine meetings of Clare County Council from 2014 to 2019, The Clare Echo can reveal.
Though seven sitting councillors are competing against three challengers for the seven seats on offer, the Shannon MD will be a lot tighter than what is suggested on paper.
Ennistymon’s local electoral area has the smallest amount of places available with four seats on offer which suggests the fight will be tighter in North Clare than any other part of the county.
Five seats are on offer in the Killaloe Municipal District with five sitting councillors competing with five other candidates, four of which are contesting an election for the first time.
One new councillor is guaranteed in the Kilrush LEA with the unlikely possibility of more as nine candidates including four sitting councillors competing for five seats.
