Sinn Féin resignation blow

Sinn Féin will be very disappointed at the resignation of their well known former Mayor of Dungannon, Barry Monteith, who has served on Dungannon council for the last seven years. He announced that he was splitting from the party because he could “no longer reconcile with its strategy”, claiming that it was not geared towards Irish unification.

While he appears to be parting on relatively amicable terms, the real concern for Sinn Féin is that for every councillor they lose how many dozens or hundreds of voters are equally disillusioned?
