Christy Burke to fight Dublin Central by-election

CHRISTY BURKE, Sinn Féin’s longest-serving councillor on Dublin City Council, has been named as the party’s candidate for the Dublin Central by-election caused by the death of Tony Gregory TD.
Christy Burke was first elected to Dublin City Council in 1985 and has worked on many committees, projects and forums to protect and deliver for the city. Christy leads the Sinn Féin team of councillors on Dublin City Council.
Making the announcement on Sunday, Sinn Féin vice-president Mary Lou McDonald MEP said:
“Dublin Sinn Féin has a big challenge ahead contesting local, European and two by-elections on 5 June. Our message to the electorate over the coming weeks will be a straightforward one: If you want change, vote for change.
“Dublin needs new leadership. This city just cannot afford to keep Fianna Fáil on.”
