Massive advance for Sinn Féin hailed by Ó Caoláin
Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD today described the results of the Assembly elections as a "massive advance for Sinn Féin as an all-Ireland party". He said:
"I congratulate our entire party organisation in all the constituencies in the Six Counties who made this historic advance possible. This has been a remarkable election for Sinn Féin by any standards. Our voters were motivated and mobilised to deliver the maximum number of seats for Sinn Féin. This is a ringing endorsement of our peace strategy and our demand for an Ireland of Equals.
"This election represents a massive advance for Sinn Féin as an all-Ireland party. Our entire organisation throughout the country participated and the involvement of party activists from the 26 Counties, including TDs and councillors, was a crucial factor in ensuring that we maximised our vote. We are determined to ensure that this electoral success is replicated in the EU and local government elections next year". ENDS
