Sinn Féin Housing spokesperson Dessie Ellis, and spokesperson for Arts, Heritage, Tourism and Sports, Sandra McLellan, congratulate and send wishes of further success to the Irish team competing in the 2012 Homeless World Cup in Mexico. The Deputies made their comments after the team's qualification to the third round of the games.
Deputy Ellis and McLellan continued:
“The Homeless World Cup is an inspirational initiative where people from around the world who have been made homeless come together and compete.
It is a great display of the talent and dedication of these people and it highlights the huge loss to society when people are pushed to the margins.
The Irish team are doing us proud in Mexico. We wish them every success and congratulate them, their trainers and supporters on their efforts so far in this competition.”
