Healy Rae siblings Johnny & Maura both received backing from overseas yesterday in the lead up to the Kerry County Council elections this Friday 24th May.

Posting on his Facebook account Johnny said “Can I just say at this late stage to thank all the people for their kind words over the last few months of canvassing. I didn’t expect a message from the Turks and Caicos Islands though”. The video accompanying the post shows a local from the Turks & Caicos Islands in the Caribbean wishing Johnny the best of luck as he seeks re-election to the Kenmare electoral area which stretches from Kenmare and covers all of South Kerry right up to Killorglin & Beaufort.

Not to be left out, Maura Healy-Rae received backing from an American celebrity this week! New Yorks own Naked Cowboy was pictured holding up Maura’s election poster in Times Square which begged the question, who was the more famous person in the picture? Kilgarvan’s Maura Healy Rae or New Yorks The Naked Cowboy?
