Expansion of Sinn Féin in Newry

20 August, 2004

Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MLA Davy Hyland has said that the establishment of 5 new Cumainn in Newry town arguers well for the growth of Sinn Féin in the city.

Mr Hyland, speaking at the public launch of the five new Cumainn in the City, said:

"The Newry City area can now boast of five very active and strong Sinn Féin Cumainn, and this political growth reflects the trends throughout Ireland where new members from all walks of life are becoming involved in actively pursuing the Sinn Féin vision of an Ireland of Equals.

"The new structures will be instrumental in the ongoing political development of Sinn Féin.

"Over one hundred new members have joined our Party since the last election and the fact that the new Sinn Féin Cumainn are spread over the entire Newry City locality will ensure that there will be a cohesive structured and united political voice for the City. It will be of great benefit to Sinn Féin elected personnel as local networks and expertise are utilised."

The five new Sinn Féin Cumainn will be coordinated through a Newry City Executive. Chairperson of the Newry Executive, Ewan Morgan added:

"The new structures are focused firmly on strengthening the Sinn Féin party throughout the Newry area and will deliver effective and efficient leadership and greatly advance the unique United Ireland vision of our party." ENDS
