Sinn Féin election candidates in Dublin City officially lodge nomination papers
Sinn Féin General Election candidates in Dublin City have officially lodged their nomination papers this morning in the office of the Returning Officer, in Fownes Street.
Speaking this morning Sinn Féin deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald said:
“We are running fifteen candidates across the county and this morning I was joined by a number of our hugely capable candidates running in constituencies across the city.
“In the last local and European elections we substantially increased our number of public representatives across the county and in few weeks’ time we hope the electorate will vote to increase the number of deputies we return to Leinster House.
“We believe there is a great and historic opportunity now in the forthcoming election to elect an alternative and a progressive government.”
