“I’m delighted to be selected by the Sinn Féin team for this role as Deputy Chair of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council and I’m honoured to accept this role.
“I would like to thank Cllr. Oonagh Magennis for her services as Deputy Chair last year along with Cathy Mason and Cllr Michael Rice for their work as Chairs of council.
