Sinn Féin in North Antrim have selected Causeway Coast and Glens Councillor, Cara McShane, to contest the Westminster election on June 8th.

Speaking after being chosen as the party’s candidate at a selection convention in Dunloy, Cllr. McShane said:

“I am both delighted and honoured to be chosen to contest this election on behalf of Sinn Féin. We are in the middle of one of the most crucial periods in Irish history and this election throughout the North will help shape our future direction. Everyone is well aware that the big issue at stake is Brexit and Sinn Féin is intent on having a strong mandate to send a very clear message to the British Tory party that the people here want Special designated status in Europe. Anything less will be a disaster. A disaster for our farmers, for our businesses, for our economy, for our ability to travel and for our rights and protections under EU law.

“We also need to challenge the Tory party austerity measures which mean continual cuts to our budget here and are impacting heavily on our ability to deal with real issues such as Health, Education, our Roads network and protecting the most vulnerable in society.

North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan who proposed Ms McShane said:

“I was delighted to propose Cara as our Candidate in this important election. She has been an excellent representative and Councillor for the past 12 years and will be working hard to ensure our message of anti-Brexit, anti-austerity and pro-Equality is heard and defended in every part of North Antrim over the next 5 weeks of the campaign.”
