Alliance selects new candidates
The Alliance Party has selected six candidates to stand in the local council elections in May for Ards Borough Council.
Three current councillors, Kieran McCarthy, Jim McBriar and Alan McDowell are hoping to retain their seats.
They will be joined by newcomers, Deborah Girvan from Comber and Kellie Armstrong from Cloughy.
Linda Cleland will be fighting to win back Ards East.
