Mr Higgins stated, the 1916 Easter Rising Centenary and the upcoming General Election in Co Clare will be the main focus for Sinn Féin, locally in 2015 and also to further party growth in the Shannon area.

Rúnaí elected is well known Anti-Water Charges campaigner Donna McGettigan.

Ms. McGettigan was part of the leadership of the massive anti-water charges march last November in Shannon and a speaker at the last Ennis Protest March.
