Sinn Féin Midlands TDs Miss Out On Top Jobs

The party leader has included five first time TDs in her shadow cabinet. 

A midlands Sinn Féin TD has been dropped from the party's front bench. 

Laois-Offaly deputy Brian Stanley was the spokesperson on Agriculture but instead Mary Lou McDonald has opted to appoint Matt Carthy to role. 

The Party Leader has included five first time TDs in her shadow cabinet. 

Roscommon-Galway TD Claire Kerrane has taken up the role as spokesperson on Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands. 

Longford-Westmeath TD Sorca Clarake, Meath-West's Johnny Guirke and Kildare-South deputy Patricia Ryan have also missed out. 

Ms. McDonald says "the new government Ministers will have to be on their toes and on top of their briefs because they will be matched by a very energetic, very determined Sinn Féin leading the opposition".
