Well-known businessman and rally driver Manus Kelly has been elected in the Letterkenny Electoral Area.

He got elected to Donegal Co. Council on the final count, without reaching the quota.

His election means that Fianna Fáil's three candidates were all successful in this electoral area, the others being Cllr. Ciaran Brogan, who topped the poll, and Donal Coyle.

Kelly has found the experience of contesting an election very demanding and challenging.

But he has enjoyed success in this new field.

Meanwhile, the three-times winner of the Donegal International Rally now has less than a month before he defends his title.
