Yesterday Janie and I took the now-familiar trip up to Omagh and the electoral office to lodge our nomination papers. Outside we met up with our friends Ciaran McClean, the Green Party candidate for West Tyrone, and with his agent Susan (who took the photo here). Ciaran is a great candidate, an inspiring campaigner for environment and social justice and a wonderful friend and colleague. Voters in West Tyrone couldn’t possibly have a better representative.
This morning’s local papers, the Fermanagh Herald and Tyrone Constitution, had coverage of our nominations and of the comments by both Ciaran and myself about the tragic and terrible fires which have raged across our counties this week.
