Sinn Féin TD Sandra McLellan comments on Cork East review
Cork East Sinn Féin TD Sandra McLellan has said she is satisfied with the outcome of the party’s internal review of the constituency and is now looking forward to getting on with the party’s work in the constituency and building the party for the future.
Deputy McLellan said she will put her name forward once again to stand for Sinn Féin in the upcoming general election.
“There can be no doubt that the internal review in Cork East has been tough for party members. It has been long but it has been thorough and I believe that it has been fair.
“Nobody likes to lose party members but now is the time to move on from this whole episode and I am looking forward to getting on with the party’s work in the constituency and building for the future.
“I will be contesting the upcoming convention and hope to win the support of the party members in Cork East to stand once again for Sinn Féin and to retain this seat for the party.
“It’s been a great honour for me to serve the people of East Cork. It is very important that the Sinn Féin vision for a fair recovery is advanced and our republican alternative continues to advance not just in Cork East but across the island of Ireland.”
