Last Friday donegaldaily was first to reveal that Mr McBride had accepted an offer to be co-opted onto Donegal County Council.
And today he was accompanied to HQ in Lifford by Senator Jimmy Harte whose seat he is taking up.
Said Cllr McBride: “I am deeply honoured to be representing people in Letterkenny and Milford. I know a lot of the councillors on the council and of course some are former party colleagues in Fianna Fail.
“I am delighted to be representing the people and for the Labour Party.”
Cllr McBride was formally co-opted and welcomed to the body by all other councillors.
Senator Harte added: “Michael is a fantastic representative. He will serve the people well.
“This is a good day for the electorate and a good day for the Labour Party.”Tags:
