"Terry is a man I've known for almost 15 years. Through that time, he's been a good friend and confidant - and has helped and advised me on countless occasions. "A passionate gaelgeoir, a GAA man, a community activist and a person whose life long commitment to Irish republicaism is absolutely unquestionable. "Terry is extremely experienced politically. He was chairman of the Loughs Agency for a number of years and sits on the board of both Intertrade Ireland and Cooperation Ireland. It's going to take a huge effort to elect 2 Sinn Fein councillors in this area but I'm looking forward to the campaign ahead."I'd be very proud to be on the ticket with Terry."
