Responding to the resignation of a Sinn Féin candidate in Clare yesterday over anti-traveller remarks made on Facebook Sinn Féin Justice and Equality spokesperson Padraigh Mac Lochlainn TD said;

“We condemn the comments in the strongest possible terms.

“These comments are completely unacceptable and not what we expect from Sinn Féin candidates or members.

“We have accepted Cathal O’Reilly’s resignation today and we believe that it was the right thing for him to do.”
