Seán Gallagher on RTÉ’s Frontline presidential debate in 2011
On RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.
Conor McMorrow reported that businessman Seán Gallagher – who finished second behind President Michael D Higgins in the 2011 presidential race – is “actively considering” running for a seat in the forthcoming presidential election.
Mr McMorrow reported:
“Sources close to him say he is actively considering a second bid at becoming the president of Ireland and he’s expecting to make up his mind in the coming two weeks. He’s carried out some private opinion polling in recent weeks as well and apparently he’s looking at data from those polls as he considers entering in the race or not.”
“I don’t know how much we can read into this but we just found out last night that the web domain seangallagher.2018.com was registered just last Wednesday, at lunchtime last Wednesday.
“Sources close to Mr Gallagher would not comment on the significance, if any of this move, but it is very interesting.”
