Third councillor leaves the SDLP in Tyrone

Cllr-Joanne-Donnelly

A third councillor has left the SDLP in Tyrone as internal difficulties within the party boil over.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Councillor Joanne Donnelly has confirmed she will back Josephine Deehan and Patsy Kelly, both of whom left the party last week.

They will contest next month's assembly election in West Tyrone as independent social democrats.
