Sinn Féin leader on Moyle Council Cara McShane has announced that Moyle council Independent Councillor Colum Thompson has joined Sinn Féin 

Councillor McShane said,

“I am delighted that the Árd Comhairle has this morning ratified the membership of Moyle Councillor Colum Thompson.  Colum had approached the party about membership and we have held several conversations with him.

“Colum will join a strong Sinn Féin team on Moyle District Council and I look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead.

Councillor Thompson added,

“I stood as an independent in the last election but found that my politics were very close to that of Sinn Féin.  I have decided that I can represent the people of Moyle more effectively as being part of a strong and growing political party and all the back up that that provides.

“I decided that I would apply for membership and I am happy that my request has been ratified today.  I look forward to working as part of a team and to providing a strong representation to all the people of Moyle Council area.
