The former councillor continued: “I have enjoyed my time on council, especially being able to help individuals and groups from all sections of the community over the last number of years. It has been a privilege to represent Sinn Fein and I continue to be a member of the party and will continue to do what I can outside the council chamber to promote and advance our Republican ideals.
“I wish to thank my fellow colleagues who remain on council for the support they have given me. I know they will continue to be excellent representatives for the people of Armagh City and District. I also offer best wishes to councillors from other parties. We may not have always seen eye to eye politically, but I got on well with all of them for the majority of the time. And the same for the council officials and employees who have always been helpful.
“It is of course an important election year and Sinn Féin will be fielding a strong team. I urge people to use their vote on 22nd May to return as many Sinn Féin candidates as possible to the new council structure and to vote for Martina Anderson, who has proven herself to be an exceptional MEP, in the EU election on the same day.”
