Justin McNulty entered the political arena in 2015 when he received more than 12,000 votes in the Westminster election. He was first elected to the Assembly in May 2016 and was a member of the Committee for Infrastructure. Justin has campaigned on and been vocal in the Assembly Chamber on such issues as Brexit, Newry Train Station, Daisy Hill Hospital, broadband and the RHI scheme.
Growing up in a family of six children Justin was made to appreciate the value of fighting his corner and the importance of living up to the challenge of achieving goals both on a personal and community level. He brings to politics that same drive and determination, which brought him the highest honours in sport, to deliver for all the people living in his constituency.
Allied to that, in his career in engineering, high performance and finance, Justin has built up a wide network of contacts in business and commerce from across this island which he is determined to leverage to bring jobs and economic development to Newry and Armagh.
Justin feels the passion of communities and the spirit of volunteerism is at the heart of so much which is good in his area. He knows what it means to work hard day after day, night after night, weekend after weekend, to achieve a goal which benefits everyone in the community. Justin will harness that same passion, endeavour and determination in working for people in the Westminster.
With Brexit looming Justin believes Newry and Armagh is arguably going to be the worst hit constituency on these islands. He is steadfast about how crucial it is to have someone in Westminster speaking up for us during the next two years' fight and believes this is an opportunity for to elect a Member of Parliament who will go in there and make sure the voice of Newry and Armagh is heard. Justin is determined to go into that chamber and fight for Newry and Armagh.
