O’Neill pays tribute to Mickey Brady’s contribution to building a better future 

Commenting on news that long-standing MP, Mickey Brady will not seek re-selection ahead of the upcoming Westminster election, Sinn Féin Leas-Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill MLA said: 

“For over forty years, Mickey Brady has been to the fore of giving a voice to people and working to transform communities, and played a key role in assisting people with welfare and housing advice. 

“First elected to the Assembly in 2007, Mickey has spent his life fighting for a fair and equal society, and was steadfast in his support for the Good Friday Agreement and delivering real change. 

“He was elected to Westminster as MP for Newry and Armagh on three terms and has worked hard and with great determination, both locally and abroad, to promote the continued peace and reconciliation on the island of Ireland and to consolidate the growth of Sinn Féin. 

“I want to thank Mickey for his lifelong contribution, for a life activism, friendship and for his warmth and kindness and I wish him and his family all the very best for the future. 

“Although stepping down from elected politics, I have no doubt Mickey will continue to champion the people of Newry and Armagh, while enjoying much-deserved downtime. Ádh mór, Mickey.”
