Sinn Fein's Gaeltacht victory

Irish Examiner:

SINN FÉIN yesterday won its first seat in elections to the Gaeltacht authority.

Party candidate Gráinne Mhic Géidigh took a seat in the Údarás na Gaeltachta poll for the Donegal area.

Sinn Féin general secretary Mitchel McLaughlin described the victory as a historic breakthrough for the party.

“Sinn Féin stood in this election on our agenda for change in relation to the role of Údarás na Gaeltachta, rebuilding the peace process and campaigning for Irish reunification,” he said.

“Sinn Féin will use our mandate for change and our priorities on the board of Údarás na Gaeltachta will be job creation, reform of Údarás na Gaeltachta to make it relevant, accountable and democratic and an integrated strategic plan, which would look at all the language needs of the Gaeltachtaí.”

Well done Gráinne Mhic Géidigh!
