SF cllr new Lord Mayor of Dublin
30 Jun 2015 00:12
Sinn Féin has its first Mayor of Dublin City with the election of Críona Ní Dhálaigh.
Cllr Ní Dhálaigh takes over from outgoing Lord Mayor Christy Burke following a voting pact between Sinn Féin, Labour, the Green Party and most of the Independents.
Sinn Féin became the biggest party on the city council following last year's local elections and holding the position of Lord Mayor for the 1916 centenary celebrations was a priority in negotiations.
Cllr Ní Dhálaigh was elected with 41 votes defeating Cllr Jim O'Callaghan of Fianna Fáil who got nine and Independent Cllr Mannix Flynn who got eight.
