"As you know our Officer Board met on Thursday and reviewed the current state of play in the negotiations.
"Since then Martin McGuinness has held meetings with the various parties in the north and the US envoy Declan Kelly.
"Martin McGuinness will today brief the full Ard Chomhairle and we will consider in some detail the next steps in this process and we will speak to you later in the day." CRIOCH
