West Waterford Sinn Féin has decided to establish a new cumann in the Lismore Local Electoral Area (LEA) to support the continued growth of the party in that area. Sinn Féin Councillor Conor D. McGuinness welcomed the decision and said that it demonstrates the appetite for political change that exists across Waterford.
“Sinn Féin is growing across Co. Waterford. Our membership has increased dramatically over the past two or three years, and we are widely recognised as the most active political party across the City and County.
“In my own area of West Waterford the party structure is going from strength to strength. Sinn Fein is looking ahead and putting an ambitious strategy in place to secure additional Dáil seats at the next general election, and to build on the work and visibility of our current Council Group in the next local elections.
“Sinn Féin is organised into local branches that are known as cumainn. The Lismore LEA is a natural place for the party to expand by establishing a new cumann. We have scores of activists in the area, which includes Tallow, Ballyduff,, Knockanore, Lismore, Villierstown, Cappoquin, Touraneena, Ballynamult and Ballymacarbry.
“This is a positive step forward for Sinn Féin and for all those locally that want to see real political change in Ireland. The West Waterford cumann is to be commended for the hard work that has brought the party to this point. It will continue to operate within the Dungarvan LEA, and will work closely with the new cumann in the months and years ahead.
“I am very privileged to represent the whole of West Waterford and this development will certainly assist me in my work.
“We hope to hold an inaugural AGM in the coming weeks. For more information or to get involved in Sinn Féin locally give me a call on 087 9345603.”
