Sinn Féin will hold a press conference at 12 noon on Monday 21st in the Millennium Theatre which will be attended by Pat Doherty MP, Mitchel McLaughlin MLA, Mayor of Sligo Sean MacManus and Limavady Mayor Anne Brolly.

Speaking beforehand Mr. Doherty said:

"For the last number of years Sinn Féin has been to the fore in arguing for the regeneration of the North West and for agencies and elected representatives in these six counties to work together to make this happen.

"On Monday Sinn Féin representatives in the North West will be meeting as a group to continue with this work and to set out our programme for the time ahead. This is an important initiative for the party and among the issues to be discussed will be the economic regeneration of the North West, the need for the re-establishment of the political institutions in the Six Counties and the ongoing work of reaching out to unionism."ENDS
