Meath Live understands that a county councillor is to make a bombshell announcement regarding having part of their election campaign funded by a controversial developer who has been involved in a number of planning rows within the county.

Sources have told us that when the councillor makes their statement, which it is understood will happen at a Zoom meeting in relation to the Draft Development Plan, others in the party to which they are aligned may also face questioning on the matter.

One said, ‘If this actually happens, and all the indications are it will, there could be a lot of red faces in Meath political circles.’
