Begley selected as West Tyrone candidate

Sinn Féin MP Órfhlaith Begley has been selected as her parties candidate for West Tyrone for the upcoming Westminster election.

She was officially nominated at a convention in Strabane tonight.

Speaking after her selection, the sitting MP said the upcoming Westminster election is an opportunity for the people of West Tyrone to “reject the reckless Tory/DUP Brexit” and drive forward momentum for Irish unity.


Ms Begley said, “As we hurtle towards a crash out Brexit spurred on by the chaos at Westminster and the reckless actions of Boris Johnson, an election looms.

“That election will be our opportunity to reject the Tory/DUP Brexit and drive forward momentum for Irish Unity.

“In June 2017, the nationalist people sent a powerful message by turning its back on Westminster and returning seven Sinn Féin MPs.

“Given the catastrophe that Westminster is attempting to force upon our island it is vital that people here in West Tyrone continue to show Dublin, Europe and the world that we still reject Brexit, borders and the DUP.”
