The Sinn Fein MEP Liadh Ni Riada says it would be a dream come true if she won an MEP of the year award. The Ireland South MEP was recently shortlisted for the award. She was nominated on the back of her work on the LEADER programme. Ms ni Riada is the only Irish MEP up for one of the coveted annual European Parliament awards this year. However, she’s got to canvas other MEPs to support her and she’s up against stiff competition from the biggest group in the European Parliament – the European Peoples Party group.
