Website Sue Ramsey MLA

Sue Ramsey MLA (born 1970) is an Irish Republican politician.

After growing up in Belfast, Ramsey studied catering. She represented the Poleglass and Twinbrook areas on Lisburn Borough Council from 1997 to 2005.[1]

In 1996 she was an unsuccessful candidate in the Northern Ireland Forum election in Lagan Valley.[2]Ramsey was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly in 1998 as a Sinn Féin member for West Belfast. She lost her seat at the 2003 election, when she finished 87 votes[3] behind Diane Dodds of the DUP in the closest inter-party result of the election[4] but returned to the Assembly in 2004 as a substitute for Bairbre de Brún. She was then re-elected in 2007 and 2011.

Regarding fire service in Northern Ireland, Ramsey said it was crucial that problems within the Northern Fire and Rescue Service ‘need to be tackled as soon as possible’ and that it was ‘worrying that the Fire Service has been allowed to get into such a poor state of management’.[5]
