Donegal TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has been appointed Sinn Féin's Dáil Chief Whip. 

As part of the role, the Inishowen-based TD will attend Sinn Féin's frontbench meetings.
Speaking as she announced Sinn Féin's new frontbench team today, Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD said: "New government Ministers will have to be on their toes and on top of their briefs because they will be matched by a very energetic, very determined Sinn Féin leading the opposition.  

"We will hold the government to account, bring forward solutions and continue championing the change that so many people want. I am very proud of our new frontbench team and the fact that we have strong representation from rural Ireland, as well as our cities."
