Sinn Féin Cllr Nicola Lawless was formally selected to run for the Greystones Lea in the up and coming local elections on 24th May 2019.
Cllr Lawless was first elected back in May 2014 as the first every Councillor for Sinn Féin in the Greystones District. Since then Nicola has worked tirelessly for the community in the Greystones District and beyond.
Speaking after the convention Cllr Lawless said “I am very humbled and honoured to be selected by my peers to run again in the 2019 Local Elections which take place on May 24th. Since been elected I have represented the people of the Greystones District to the best of my ability. I have been involved in many community groups, campaigns; I have secured funding for footpath, road repairs and a tree maintenance fund and I m part of a committee to help get CCTV for Greystones to help ensure public safety.”
“I fought against the water charges and have headed the campaign along with my Sinn Féin colleagues in Wicklow to get a GP out of hours service for North Wicklow and will continue to do so until it is up and running.”
“If elected again I will continue to work hard and represent the people of the Greystones District and Wicklow.”
Cllr Mary Mc Donald from Arklow said “I was delighted to Chair Cllr Nicola Lawless‘s selection convention, where Nicola was officially selected to contest the Local Elections on May 24th, 2019 in the Greystones electoral area. Nicola has worked steadfastly for the area since 2014 and I‘ve no doubt she will continue to do so when re -elected in May”
Cllr Lawless concluded “I intend to go out and give it my all for this election, having a Sinn Fein councillor in Greystones over the past five years has given the people a real alternative voice to Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael and I will continue to do so. I would like to thank my colleague Cllr Mary Mc Donald for chairing tonight’s meeting and our Chair of our Cumann Esther Kelly for her continued support. Thank you also to TD John Brady for his continued support over the last 4 and half years and all our members in Wicklow. We will have a very strong team of Sinn Féin candidates in Wicklow for the local elections this year and we are aiming to take all our seats.
