The Sinn Fein group on Tipperary County Council is to increase after Independent Councillor Anne Marie Ryan is to stand for Sinn Fein in the next Local Elections.

It is understood that more than one political party had approached the former March for Tipp Representative.

Councillor Ryan says Sinn Féin’s determination to end the housing crisis, and to help create a fair and just society, informs her primary motivation for joining the party.

Cllr Ryan was first elected in 2019 under the now disbanded March for Tipp banner and has been focused on the delivery of the Tipperary town By Pass, the regeneration of Tipperary town and increased housing delivery in particular.

Ms Ryan says she believes that Sinn Féin has the solutions and political will to end the housing and homelessness crisis.

Welcoming Cllr Ryan to Sinn Féin, Deputy Martin Browne says “Cllr Annemarie Ryan has proven herself to be an effective councillor and campaigner who is known for her tireless work in putting the interests of the community to the fore in all she does.”

Cllr Ryan will now join Tipperary town based Sinn Fein Councillor Tony Black and Carrick on Suir Councillor David Dunne on Tipperary County Council giving the party 3 seats out of 40 in advance of the 2024 Local Elections due in June next year.
