Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Ó Caoláin - Fine Gael leaders comments - sign of growing desperation

11 January, 2004


Sinn Féin Dáil Group leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD has said that Enda Kenny‚s comments this afternoon ruling out coalition with Sinn Féin shows that the EU and Local election campaigns have well and truly begun and points to the failure of Fine Gael to provide any real alternative to the conservative policies of the Fianna Fáil/PD government.

Deputy Ó Caoláin said:

"The Fine Gael leader ruling out coalition with Sinn Féin has caused amusement to republicans throughout the country.

"It merely points to the failure of Fine Gael, as the so-called main opposition party, to provide any real alternative to the conservative policies of the Fianna Fáil/PD government.

"As the most rapidly growing party in Ireland the last thing Sinn Féin is considering is jumping aboard the floundering ship of Fine Gael. Enda Kenny‚s remarks show that the EU and Local election campaigns have well and truly begun. And Sinn Féin goes into them confident of major gains."ENDS
