Derry Sinn Fein councillor 'humbled' after being presented with award at Foyle Pride Ball

The Derry Sinn Fein councillor Sandra Duffy has said she feels 'humbled' after receiving the Terry McCartney Award for Social Awareness at the Foyle Pride Ball on Sunday night. Cllr Duffy said: “It was an absolute honour on Sunday night at the Pride Ball, to receive the Terry McCartney award for Social Awareness. “I am overwhelmed and would like to thank so much to the Foyle Pride Committee. They have once again this year done a fantastic job.
