“This is a crucial time in politics on the island of Ireland and our border constituency needs strong and committed representation to defend Newry and Armagh from the worst impacts of Brexit and five more years of Tory rule.



“Building on my work as a Councillor in Newry, Mourne and Down over many years, I hope to provide precisely this representation,” she continued.

“I will continue to ensure rural areas receive the community policing they deserve and Newry continues to develop through investment in world-class facilities.



“Newry and Armagh must also be providing leadership on the broader issues facing our island and young people, not least of which is climate breakdown, inequality, and continued attacks on our public services from Westminster.



“I am eager to build upon Sinn Féin’s proud record of delivery in Newry and Armagh and in working closely with our dynamic team of public representatives in the area,” Kimmins added.
