The AGM of West Belfast Sinn Féin was held on Thursday 21 February
Sinn Féin Councillor Deirdre Hargey (South Belfast) chaired. Paul Maskey MP outlined the work the party has been involved in over the past year and the success of numerous projects that have secured investment and employment in the constituency.
Belfast Sinn Féin Chair Bobby Storey addressed the meeting.
