SF Lord Mayor to step down before having to meet the Queen…

Well, whilst Martin is thinking about meeting the Queen Short Strand based Councillor Niall O’Donghaille is not taking any chances. He’s going to be outta there a few days beforehand, in case there is the least chance of being tainted with the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations which start on 1st June this year…

The Mayor’s blushes are to be saved by shifting the election of the new Mayor a few days earlier than expected, apparently as the result of a deal with the DUP which should see SF provide backing for the DUP candidature in time for the 1912 anniversaries…
