Saturday 4th April 2015. Glengormley.
Thanks to my (free travel) Translink Pass…a bus ride from Belfast for a walk around Glengormley. Quite a surprise to see so many SDLP posters for North Belfast candidate, Alban Maginness.
Beginning (amusingly) at Clifton Street Orange Hall, there were posters for Alban, all along Antrim Road. I would estimate that SDLP posters outnumbered Sinn Féin posters at least 10:1 and outnumbered DUP posters by maybe 20:1.
Posters for SDLP were at all points…New Lodge, Newington, Fortwilliam, Bellevue and into Glengormley. Likewise posters for Gerry Kelly (SF) were at all points on the Antrim Road to Glengormley but more spaced out. DUP (Dodds) posters were mostly in the Fortwilliam and Glengormley area.
I realise that Posters are not Votes. But I was really surprised to see SDLP so visible.
