anyone watching the elections? SDLP candidate makes her own bit of history in NI election

Lilian Seenoi-Barr made her own bit of history over the weekend by becoming the first black politician to be elected to any public office in Northern Ireland.

The SDLP member took the 5th seat in the Foyleside District Electoral Area of Derry and Strabane City Council.
Two years ago, she was co-opted onto the council and was selected to contest the seat this time around.
She secured 960 first preference votes, 15.5% of the total in her area.
