Sinn Féin to host Sligo-Leitrim convention next week

Sinn Féin has announced the details of its selection process for candidates for the next general election in the Sligo-Leitrim constituency.

It’s holding two selection conventions – one for the Sligo-south Donegal region and another for Leitrim-north Roscommon.

The latter convention will be held in the Bush Hotel in Carrick-on-Shannon on Friday, December 15, at 8pm.


It’s believed the party will choose one candidate from each part of the constituency, with sitting TD Martin Kenny expected to be the choice of Leitrim and north Roscommon delegates.

Nominations will close 48 hours before the convention.
