Micheál Martin has played an entirely negative role on the north – Murphy
Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy called today on Micheál Martin to support the Good Friday Agreement and rights for all citizens.
The Newry Armagh MLA said that the Fianna Fáil party leader has played a negative role on the north.
Conor Murphy said:
“Since becoming Fianna Fáil leader, Micheál Martin has played an entirely negative role on the north.
“He wanted the northern political institutions suspended two years ago.
“His electoral ambitions and petty party political concerns have blinded him to the failure or the DUP and British government to honour agreements and respect the rights of Irish speakers, the LGBTQ community, and the victims of the conflict who have been denied inquests.
“Mícheál Martin might be prepared to accept this and allegations of corruption in government. Sinn Féin are not.
“It is past time for him to end his negativity and stand with the other parties to support the Good Friday Agreement and the rights of all citizens.”
