Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, responding today to an attack on his party from Fianna Fáil leader Mícheál Martin, said the “real acts of lunacy where taken by Mr Martin and his party over the past 14 years leading us to an unprecedented economic crisis.”
Mr Adams said: “Sinn Féin didnt create the economic crisis. Sinn Fein didn't give away what remains of our sovereignty. Sinn Féin didn't put big bankers and golden circles before Irish citizens.
“Sinn Féin makes no apology for saying that Irish taxpayers cannot afford the EU/IMF money. Our view on this is shared by many prominent economists including a Nobel Prize winning economist.” ENDS
