Armagh Mayor visits Wexford

The Mayor of Armagh City, Sinn Féin Councillor Pat O'Rawe, paid an extended visit to County Wexford last weekend. Cllr O'Rawe, the first female Assembly member in her constituency and the first ever Sinn Féin Mayor of Armagh, met with a wide variety of local community groups in Wexford, Rosslare, Gorey, Enniscorthy and New Ross. She also joined the local election candidate trail in Gorey and Enniscorthy, and launched the new Sinn Féin manifesto: Women in an Ireland of Equals in New Ross, before attending a party function in Hotel Curracloe on Saturday night.

Speaking at the launch of the women's manifesto in New Ross on Saturday, accompanied by local Sinn Féin election candidates, Sandra Ryan (Gorey), Noreen Sheridan (Enniscor-thy) and Bernie Murphy (New Ross), Pat O'Rawe said: "Sinn Féin will work with all those committed to promoting equality at all levels of society and we bring the same commitment to change to our own party. In these elections we are standing the largest number of women candidates ever in winnable seats and the issue of equality is central to our entire campaign."
