Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

SINN Fein will meet to­day to se­lect the party’s can­di­date for the up­com­ing Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

The Ard Chomhairle will will take place in the CWU Of­fices on the North Cir­cu­lar Road in Dublin.

Their elec­tion cam­paign will be launched at lunchtime with an ad­dress from the newly-se­lected can­di­date.

One of the party’s MEPS Li­adh Ni Ri­ada is viewed as the most likely can­di­date but Belfast so­lic­i­tor John Fin­u­cane is also in the run­ning.

Ms Ni Ri­ada, who is the daugh­ter of late com­poser Sean O Ri­ada, has said it would be a “huge hon­our” to con­test the elec­tion.
