1st Sinn Féin Chairperson on Coleraine Council
Sinn Féin Councillor Ciaran Archibald has expressed his thanks to all those who have wished him ‘good luck’ as he takes up the position of Chairperson of Environmental Services.
Councillor Archibald stated,
“This is the first time that Sinn Féin has held the position of Chairperson of one of the committees on Coleraine Council although we have had seats on the Council since 2004.
"I am looking forward to the challenge of this position and serving all the people of Coleraine. Being the first Sinn Fein Councillor to Chair a Committee is a privilege and is a step forward for Coleraine Borough Council.
“Not only does it shows that progress towards inclusivity is being made but that relations are improving and that by showing mutual respect for each others tradition we can all work together for the benefit of all the citizens in Coleraine and district."
