Dublin North East Sinn Fein to select General Election Candidate

17 May, 2005

Newly elected Westminster MP Conor Murphy and Dublin MEP, Mary Lou McDonald will be among the speakers at the Sinn Fein Convention to nominate a candidate to represent the party at the next General Election in Dublin North East. The Convention is being held this Wednesday, May 18th at the Shieling Hotel in Raheny at 8.00pm.

Following on the performance of the party's Local Election candidates last summer, in which Councillor Killian Forde secured over 3,300 first preferences in Donaghmede Ward and Councillor Larry O‚Toole secured the second highest vote of any candidate in the State, with over 4,400 votes in Artane, Sinn Fein feels that it is on the verge of an historic victory in this three seat constituency.ENDS
