John Kierans, the Fianna Fáil PRO for the Louth/East Meath region has been dismissed over remarks he made to the website, Drogheda Life

It comes after Mr. Kierans yesterday told Drogheda Life that Covid-19 is “no different to a bad flu season.”

He also called on the party to seek the advice of “anti-lockdown” epidemiologists and virologists.

In a statement to the online news site, the party’s Comhairle Dáil Cheantair moved to disassociate itself from Mr. Kierans’ comments while urging people to continue following public health advice.

However it appears Kierans does not intend to leave matters there as he has said he believes that as he was elected to the position the local organisation do not have the power to unelect him.

More on this story as we get it.
