Fianna Fáil in Sligo who have been searching for a 40-year-old man who was missing since last week have found him.
Fianna Fáil Health spokesperson in the Seanad, Senator Marc MacSharry, has been found “safe and well”.
Fianna Fáil colleagues confirmed that 40-year-old Marc MacSharry was found found alive and well and enjoying his holiday in Portugal.
Concerns were raised after the Senator failed to show up to the Seanad after he made a big song and a dance about how the Seanad should be recalled.
A spokesman for Fianna Fail: “Senator MacSharry was located safe and well in Portugal.” “We would like to thank the media for their assistance and the public for all their calls relating to the matter.” Responding to questions from the media the Fianna Fáil spokesperson said : “No, Marc is not an embarrassment”.
Senator MacSharry was last seen by the media leaving the Seanad last July and was believed to be heading in the Sligo direction.
Gardai spoke to friends and family of Senator MacSharry both in Fianna Fáil and save the Seanad campaign, in a bid to locate him as soon as possible.
Fianna Fáil councillor Eamon Scanlon and constituency rival of Marc MacSharry was seen grinning like a maniac but made no comment on the Senator snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
The Seanad was recalled after Fianna Fáil senator Mark Daly secured the signatures of 20 Senators to force the special sitting to discuss organ donation legislation. Senator Daly gave no comment on MacSharry, but could be heard humming Gotye’s song “someone I used to know.”
