18th February 2024 - Fine Gael Press Office

Senator Regina Doherty has been selected by Fine Gael members in Dublin to represent the party at June’s European Elections.

The selection convention took place at Dublin City University’s St Patrick’s Campus with more than 600 in attendance. The convention was contested by Minister Josepha Madigan and Senators Regina Doherty and Barry Ward.

Senator Regina Doherty said:

“I’m delighted to have been selected as the Fine Gael candidate for the Dublin constituency. It is an honour to be asked by my party members to represent Fine Gael and try to retain a seat in the constituency at the June European elections.

“I will be working now to ensure we hold the MEP seat won by Frances Fitzgerald at the 2019 European Elections. Frances has repeatedly demonstrated the influential role she holds in the European Parliament and I intend to build on her work.

“Decisions made in Brussels and Strasbourg affect everyone’s lives in Dublin.

“Fine Gael is a pro-European party with a proud record. Due to international events, there are many challenges facing this country.

“I want to ensure that Dublin’s voice – the capital of a proud nation – is heard loudly within the European Parliament and to continue the good work of all the Fine Gael MEPs.

“My focus now is on campaigning hard and winning a seat in the Dublin constituency for Fine Gael.”

Fine Gael’s European Director of Elections Minister Simon Coveney, who chaired the convention, said:

“The last five years have shown how vital Fine Gael’s MEPs have been on the European stage protecting our national interest through Brexit and Covid while also standing up for the right thing on the global stage like our position on Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“I’m absolutely delighted that a person of such integrity and ability as Senator Regina Doherty is now our candidate to carry on that work. We must get our team and our voters behind Regina to send her to Brussels.”
