Sinn Féin Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Siobhán Currie, has said she is looking forward to the challenges of the new role and representing everyone across the council area.
Speaking after being elected as Chair last night, Councillor Currie said:
“It is a great honour and a privilege to have been elected as chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.
“In the year ahead I will represent everyone across the council area and be a passionate promoter of this district.
“In particular I want to focus on protecting the environment so that locals and the growing number of tourists who visit our beautiful area can enjoy the stunning natural landscapes and scenery just as they are.
“And I want to reiterate our total opposition to fracking anywhere in this council area or throughout the island.
“I also want to promote rights and equality for all, including the Irish language community in the district, and to stand up for the interests of everyone.
“There will no doubt be challenges in the year ahead, particularly as a result of Brexit, but I am looking forward to tackling those challenges and working with all parties on the council for the benefit of everyone in this area.”
