Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson visited the south Armagh area on Friday past. She was accompanied by Newry & Armagh Westminister Candidate Mickey Brady MLA and local Councillors including current Mayor of Newry & Mourne Cllr Dáire Hughes and Slieve Gullion Councillors Terry Hearty, Anthony Flynn and Barra Ó Muirí. Martina visited the family owned ReGenWaste Newry Facility, Forkhill, St Josephs High School Crossmaglen and the WALD Centre Cullyhana. Describing her visit as informative the MEP commented, “I was delighted to meet up with a range of business, community, voluntary activists as well as engage with young students and discuss various social and economic issues. “Along with my Sinn Féin colleagues Liadh Ní Riada, Matt Carty and Lynn Boylan we will work to ensure that we offer the people a clear, credible and radical alternative both at EU level and here and at home.” Newry & Armagh MLA Mickey Brady, welcoming Martina to the area, said, “I was pleased to introduce Martina to some of our business, voluntary and community sector. It is good to be able to bring her European influence and first hand knowledge directly to all. “We are committed to regular access to our MEPs to ensure that the voices of all are heard,” he added.
