Sinn Féin only alternative to Austerity Parties – Adams

The Sinn Féin Louth selection convention will take place on Monday evening in the Westcourt Hotel, West St. Drogheda at 7.30pm.

The successful candidates will be available to speak to the media after the convention at approx 8.15pm.

Sinn Féin Party leader and sitting TD Gerry Adams will be allowing his name to go forward again and the party is expected to select a second candidate to stand for the constituency.

A Sinn Féin spokesperson said:

“The local government election and European results of last year show a Sinn Féin party building in political strength across the island.

The constituency of Louth and East Meath has seen a particular rise in the Sinn Féin vote and following discussion within the party it was agreed to recommend a two candidate strategy for the constituency.

The next general election will see a clear choice between the austerity and conservative politics of Fine Gael and Labour, or a socially progressive Sinn Féin-led government.

Sinn Féin plans to grow our economy out of recession; create real jobs with proper terms and conditions; a decent health service accessible to all; deliver first class public services, including for those living in rural Ireland; work to bring back our immigrant children, and build a United Ireland of equals.
