Mickey Brady gets Sinn Fein nomination but what now for Murphy?

Tonight comes the news that Newry MLA Mickey Brady has been nominated in place of the sitting MP Conor Murphy.

That’s quite a piece of news for a man who was once widely spoken of as a future leader, and a former Minister of course.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
