Announcing the details of the dinner dance Sinn Féin Councillor John
Brady said " I am delighted to announce the details of the Wicklow
Sinn Fein dinner dance which will take place on Saturday 24th November
in the Royal Hotel, Bray. Every year we have a special honoree and
this year there was unanimous agreement that it should be Wicklow
republican Eamonn Long"
"Eamon is a life long republican was was elected onto Wicklow Town
Council on his first attempt in 2004. He earned a reputation for
standing up for people and communities in Wicklow Town. Eamonn was
reelected onto the council in 2009 and increased his vote in the
process. Unfortunately due to personal circumstances he had to retire
from the council in 2011 and the seat was subsequently taken by his
Sinn Féin colleague Gary O'Reilly who was co-opted onto the council"
Cllr Brady continued "The dinner dance is set to be a great occasion
and its the first time it will be held in Bray in the excellent Royal
Hotel. We are expecting a huge turnout on the evening from Sinn Fein
members from across Wicklow and also Eamonn friends and people and
groups he helped out over the years, we will also have a special guest
speaker on the evening. There are a limited number of tickets
remaining and if interested people can contact Marie Gavaghan
