Sinn Féin hosting selection convention tonight in the Errigal Hotel

Sinn Féin is hosting a selection convention for the Cavan / Monaghan / North Meath constituency tonight at 8pm in the Errigal Hotel, Cootehill, in Cavan.

Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald has also been confirmed as the guest speaker for the event.

Per party rules, Sinn Féin requires a fresh consideration of its candidate team for the upcoming General Election.

Pauline Tully and Matt Carthy have been nominated for selection but Sinn Féin say “the door is open if others are interested in seeking the opportunity to represent” the party.
