Responding to Eamon Gilmore’s resignation as Labour Leader today Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said;
“This is obviously a difficult day for Eamon Gilmore and his family.
“However, this is not about personalities, it's about policies.
“Quite clearly the voters have rejected the policies of this Government.
“They have rejected the brutal agenda of relentless austerity, taking medical cards from sick children, water taxes and cuts to the most vulnerable.
“What is required is a change of political direction and a change of Government.”
