Cork East Fine Gael TD, David Stanton has expressed his delight at being re-elected to the new Dail. This is the fourth time in a row David Stanton has been elected in Cork East Constituency which includes the towns of Carrigtwohill Cobh, Fermoy, Mallow, Midleton, Mitchelstown and Youghal and the surrounding areas.
“I would like to say a sincere thank you to all the people who voted from me. It is wonderful to, once again, be chosen by the people of Cork East to represent them in Dail Eireann. I was first elected as a TD in 1997 and have been very fortunate to be successful in each general election since. This election was particularly exciting as Fine Gael won two of the four seats in Cork East.
“I would also like to thank all the people who helped me throughout my campaign. I was astounded at the huge level of support I received. Fine Gael and Young Fine Gael members and other supporters gave so generously of their time. I really appreciate it. I could not have done it without them.
“I am looking forward to the commencement of the new Dail next week. I am delighted about the success of Fine Gael which makes it possible for us to lead the new Government. I am sure that our policies will get Ireland working again. In addition to dealing with national issues, I will, of course, continue to do my best to work for the people of Cork East.
