Sinn Féin can win this seat - Joe Reilly
Speaking at an election rally in Navan last night Gerry Adams, Uachtaran Shinn Féin told the more than 300 election workers in attendance that "The message coming across loudly on the doorsteps is that the people of Meath want change." In an optimistic mood, Sinn Féin candidate for the Meath by-election Councillor Joe Reilly said, "Sinn Féin can win this seat."
Mr. Adams said, "The message coming across loudly on the doorsteps is that the people of Meath want change. They are no longer prepared to sit and wait for the establishment parties to address the pressing issues of roads, hospitals, incineration, schools and childcare facilities.
"They want public representatives who will work and not merely talk on their behalf, and they know that Joe Reilly is 'a walker and not a talker' with a proven track record as a public advocate. For this reason the people in Meath will vote Joe Reilly no.1 on Friday March 11th."
Also speaking at the rally Councillor Reilly said, "The latest polls have shown that Sinn Féin is on 14.9% of the vote. But, although this shows a great increase in our support, what we have to remember is that traditionally polls underestimate our vote. Previous polls have told us that people like, Pat Doherty, Seán Crowe, Martin Ferris and Mary Lou McDonald would not be elected. So make no mistake Sinn Féin can win this seat." ENDS
