Sinn Féin TD for Wicklow John Brady was unanimously selected by Sinn Féin members from across Wicklow to contest the next General Election.
The convention took place on Tuesday evening in the Arklow Bay Hotel with guest speaker Deputy MaryLou McDonald.
Accepting the nomination Teachta Brady said:
“I am absolutely honoured and humbled to have been unanimously selected again by the Wicklow Sinn Féin members as the party’s General Election candidate when the election is held.
“It has been a privilege to give the people of Wicklow a strong voice in Leinster House since making history in 2016 by winning the seat.
“As the only opposition TD representing Wicklow I've worked hard to represent everyone without fear or favour and I look forward to continuing that work if given the mandate by the people of Wicklow again.
“In the next Dáil term I want to be part of a Sinn Féin government that will tackle the crises in housing, homelessness and our health service, build a United Ireland that really does cherish all our children equally.
“I will continue to work hard for all of the people of Wicklow and I look forward to doing so in 2018.”
