Sinn Féin seek co-option to replace Fermanagh Councillor

4 September, 2009

Sinn Féin is seeking a co-option on Fermanagh District Council to replace Erne West Councillor Domhnall O'Cobhthaigh who is stepping down from the Council.

Sinn Féin Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew commenting said:

“'While I disagree with the arguments put forward by Cllr Cobhthaigh and am disappointed to lose Domhnall from the team in Fermanagh I respect his decision to step down from the Council and resign from the party.

“I want to thank Domhnall for his hard work and commitment and wish him well in the future.

“Fermanagh Sinn Fein is now seeking agreement to co-opt a replacement and avoid a by-election that would cost ratepayers £30,000.” ENDS
