'Europe in Sligo' Fun Day

Sligo's O'Connell Street was a hive of activity on the final weekend before
the crucial Lisbon Treaty referendum brought active campaigners
from both sides out to meet with Sligo shoppers.

Labour's Susan O'Keeffe organised her 'Europe in Sligo' fun day to
promote a YES vote and to highlight how much Europe has enhanced
the lives of people in the premier Northwest town, Sligo.
