Margaret Anne McKillop, SDLP candidate for East Antrim. I wasn’t expecting SDLP posters in Larne. There are some on Circular Road, near the railway station and another group at the Laharna Shopping Mall.
Good to see SDLP posters in the town. Nationalists and Catholics tend to keep a low profile “heads as low as a Catholic in Larne”. But a feature of this election is the visibility of SDLP in (so far) Newtownards, Bangor and (now) Larne.
There are nationalist areas in East Antrim, along the coast, north of Larne.
Of course, this election is also about preparation for the 2016 Assembly Election. One of the six seats is held by Sinn Féin and it will be interesting to see how the two nationalist perform against each other.
I have never met Margaret Anne McKillop. She was elected for SDLP to the Causeway Coast council in 2014. She was previously a member of Sinn Féin.
