Connemara councillor Noel Thomas resigns from Fianna Fail

Connemara councillor Noel Thomas has announced his resignation from the Fianna Fail party.

He says it wasn’t a decision taken easily, but he feels the party is completely out of touch with the people.

Noel Thomas and fellow Fianna Fáil councillor Seamus Walsh faced criticism from party leadership for their comments in the wake of a fire at Ross Lake House Hotel in Roscahill in December.

The premises had been ear-marked as accommodation for refugees.

Noel Thomas told Galway Talks that while it’s bittersweet, he’s confident he’s made the right decision.
