: 04/21/2017 - 11:40

A Naas councillor has confirmed that she is resigning from Sinn Fein, claiming the party environment in Kildare is "a very hostile and toxic place".

In a statement issued to Kfm, Cllr Sorcha O'Neill claims four additional members of the Wolfe Tone Cumann in Naas are also leaving, and a further two members have withdrawn from local structures but will remain as card carrying members of the party.

In response to a request from Kfm for a statement on the matter, a Sinn Féin spokesperson said:

"We regret that Cllr Sorcha O’Neill has decided to leave the party. It is our belief that she was a dedicated and capable member of our team and on the council. 

"We acknowledge that there are difficulties present in the area which we are working to address. 

"We wish Sorcha all the best in the future."
