Aontú is delighted to welcome Emmet Doyle as Aontú’s new Cllr for Derry following his selection by the party and ratification by the Derry City & Strabane District Council, and looks forward to the work he will do on behalf of the people of Derry.

According to Aontú Leader Teachta Tóibín:

“Emmet Doyle is a great choice to be Aontú’s new Cllr for Derry and to fight for the founding of principles: the protection of all life, the pursuit of Irish unity, and the fight for economic justice. A strong voice is needed now more than ever during Covid-19 and the prospect of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit”.

“Derry and the north west of Ireland has been ignored by the Stormont Assembly since its inception. As a regional city Derry has enormous potential and we in Aontú are determined in making it happen,

“Aontú is only 20 months old, yet we have achieved over 50,000 votes, has elected reps from Derry to Wexford, has over 1,000 members and 60 functioning Cumann. Aontú is polling higher that PbP and similar levels to the Labour and the Greens.

We are an All-Ireland political movement that is now preparing for the Stormont elections. The Foyle constituency will be a target constituency for us.

I have every confidence that Emmet Doyle will help lead that fight for Aontú in Derry, and on Derry City & Strabane District Council.”
