The Mayo Sinn Féin selection convention for next year’s local elections will take place this Sunday, November 10, in the Welcome Inn Hotel, Castlebar, starting at 3pm. Kerry Sinn Féin councillor Toiréasa Ferris will officiate.
Speaking after last Saturday’s Ard Chomhairle meeting, where 217 Sinn Féin candidates across the country were ratified, Councillor Rose Conway-Walsh said: “All of the Sinn Féin candidates for the county will be selected on the day. It is our intention to run candidates in all four electoral areas. The number of candidates has yet to be decided. All members are invited to attend and each member will have a vote provided they are in the party for longer than three months.”
