Local Elections: Lisburn & Castlereagh

An amalgamation of five DEAs from Lisburn and two from Castlereagh.
Both heavily loyalist.
Lying mostly within the Lagan Valley and South Belfast.

Results.
DUP 20. UUP 8. TUV 1. NI21 1.
SDLP 3.
Alliance 7.

SDLP Perspective.
Some brave souls contested some of the inner Lisburn areas but did not get elected. SDLP will draw some satisfaction that Sinn Fein did not take any nationalist seat in either Glenavy or Castlereagh South.
SDLP got two seats in Castlereagh South which added to good performances in South Belfast will give the party confidence for 2015 and 2016.
SDLP would have hoped for a better platform in Lagan Valley.
