NI Assembly Election: Frantic final day of campaigning for Stormont candidates

By Staff Reporter

Northern Ireland election hopefuls made a hectic last-ditch attempt to secure further votes as their hard-fought campaign trails came to an end.

After some 42 days and countless hours of campaigning drew to a close, candidates and their canvassing teams spent a frantic few hours carrying out leaflet drops and sharing cups of tea with the locals.  

DUP leader Arlene Foster made a pit stop at the Moree Orange Hall to chat to members of the Country Roads Women’s group.

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone candidate posed for pictures and helped serve tea and coffee at the event.

Meanwhile, Sinn Fein’s Michelle O’Neill spoke with a few voters in Toomebridge as she wrapped up her first election campaign as the party’s Northern Ireland leader.

The Ulster Unionist’s Roy Beggs joined his campaign team in East Antrim for one of their last selfies.

Meanwhile, the SDLP’s Roisin Lynch spent her final few hours chatting to residents in the Crumlin area.
