SDLP battle it out for West Tyrone…

We’re hearing it’s going to be close between Deeney and someone (Deehan probably) in the SDLP. A deal of local rivalry saw them running two candidates. Sinn Fein, are comfortably set to take their third. Derek Hussey is another UUP casulty as the DUP’s Thomas Buchanan and Allan Bresland come in beautifully balanced and well ahead of him and the SDLP.
