Sinn Féin statement on expulsion of Wicklow Councillors
Three Sinn Fein Councillors in County Wicklow, Councillor Gerry O'Neill, Councillor John Snell and Councillor Oliver O'Brien have today been expelled from the party.
Speaking today, the party's Chairperson of its Ireland South Cúige, David Cullinane TD, said:
“Sinn Féin had sought over the past 18 months to resolve a dispute in the Sinn Féin council team on Wicklow County Council.
"A resolution has not been possible and the Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle has moved to expel from the party three councillors who have failed to attend council team meetings over the past 18 months.
"Sinn Féin is moving on from this dispute and the Council team will continue to deliver for the people of Wicklow.”
