Moyle Councillor Margaret Anne McKillop, who has represented the Glens since 2011, has announced that she has joined the SDLP. 

Announcing her move, Councillor McKillop said;

“I have made a principled decision to join the party which I feel best reflects my political vision for building a better Ireland. I am joining a party which steadfastly adhered to the principles of democracy, peace, reconciliation and social justice. I am proud and excited to be joining the SDLP, and will continue to work hard for my community in the Glens of Antrim.”
Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham said:
 “I am delighted to welcome Margaret Anne into our party and onto the Council group. She is a hard working local councillor and an excellent representative who cares a great deal about her local community and the people she represents. I have worked well with Margaret Anne on a number of projects and am now looking forward to working with her as a party colleague. There is a place in the SDLP for people who are committed to progressive politics and want to make a positive difference.”
Party Leader Dr. Alasdair McDonnell MP said,
“I am delighted to welcome Margaret Anne to the SDLP. Margaret Anne is a committed community worker and someone who has shown her dedication to public service during her time in Moyle Council. I am confident that Dónal Cunningham and Margaret Anne will make a formidable team working together to create change for the better in the Glens.”
It is expected that the local SDLP Branches will this week ratify Councillors McKillop and Cunningham as joint candidates on the SDLP ticket for the expanded Glens District Electoral Area in the new Causeway Coast and Glens Council.
