Howlin confirmed his decision on his public Twitter page.

In a post published this morning, Brendan Howlin stated that:

“After serving Wexford in Dáil Éireann for almost forty years I have announced today that I will not be contesting the next General Election. It has been the privilege of my life to hold many public offices and enjoy the unbroken support of the people of the county I love,” he said.
