Sinn Féin to launch rural voter registration campaign at Ploughing Championships

28 September, 2006

Sinn Féin's MEPs Mary Lou McDonald and Bairbre de Brún, accompanied by the party's agriculture spokesperson Michelle Gildernew MP, will be launching a rural voter registration driver at the Sinn Féin stall Stand 235, Row L at the Ploughing Championships in Carlow at 11.30am, Friday the 29th September.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Ms McDonald, the party‚s National Chairperson, said:

"There is a special urgency about registering people in rural areas, ignored and undervalued by a Dublin focused administration.

"The best way to address declining farming numbers, unbalanced regional investment and appalling access to public services for people in the country is to ensure as loud a voice as possible is heard at the polls." ENDS
