Mairéad Farrell selected to contest next general election for Sinn Féin in Galway-West

Sinn Féin’s Mairéad Farrell has been selected by the party to contest the Galway West constituency in the next General Election.

Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill MLA was the main speaker at this evening’s convention, which saw the former Galway city councillor selected to stand for the party.

Speaking at the event, Michelle O’Neill said:

“I am delighted that Mairéad Farrell has been selected as the Sinn Féin candidate for the Galway-West constituency.

“The people of Galway can count on Mairéad to be a fearless voice who will defend their interests in Leinster House.

“The problems facing Ireland in 2019 need real world solutions, in health, housing and public services to ensure that nobody is left behind, or allowed to fall through the cracks.

She added:

“People don’t need more of the same. They don’t need status quo politics, spin or empty rhetoric.

“A generation is being left behind by the politics of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael. Families are being ripped off by rogue insurers and rack-renting landlords. The government treats hard-earned taxpayers’ money with contempt while Micheal Martin continues to facilitate weak government through confidence and supply.

“People need solutions, not stagnation. 

“Sinn Fein are on the frontline campaigning and providing effective, progressive policy solutions north and south. 

“Sinn Féin are offering the people of Galway West a strong republican and effective candidate in Mairéad Farrell, and I am asking for their support.”
