A special meeting of Kildare County Council takes place today, to fill a vacancy created by the General Election.
Sitting Cllr. in the Kildare-Newbridge Municipal District, Patricia Ryan, won a Dáil seat in Kildare South.
She must now vacate her council seat.
Sinn Féin will select her replacement, and a meeting to co-opt the new councillor on to KCC will take later today.
