Sinn Féin international spokesperson Pat Sheehan has expressed his shock at the scale of destruction in the Philippines caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
Mr. Sheehan said,
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the Philippines who have been suffering immensely from the effects of the typhoon that struck over the weekend.
“Our thoughts are also with the local Philippines community who have made Ireland their home and who are worried about relatives back home
“The level of death and destruction is beyond our imagination and I would call on people to support in any way they can the humanitarian relief effort that is currently taking place.”
