Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin delegation meets with An Taoiseach

12 March, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, Dublin MEP Mary Lou McDonald and Northern Executive Minister Conor Murphy today met the Taoiseach Brian Cowen and Minister for Foreign Affairs Micheál Martin.

Mr. Adams said, "It was a very good meeting. The Taoiseach is clearly seized by the imperative of the Government’s and Parties’ uniting in defence of the Peace Process.

"It is crucial that there is no breathing space given to these unrepresentative groups and that there is no sense of ambiguity about our collective opposition to their actions.

"I also stressed in our conversation the British Government must not step outside the political process.

"It is up to the police to deal with these matters.

"Political leaders, including the Governments must ensure that the process of positive change continues to deliver for citizens particularly those in disadvantaged sectors of our society." ENDS
