Adams briefs Ard Chomhairle on Hillsborough Agreement

13 February, 2010 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


Addressing the media during a break in his party’s Ard Chomhairle meeting Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said today:

“Today was the first meeting of the Ard Chomhairle since we reached agreement at Hillsborough.

“Already elements of that agreement have begun to be implemented.

“The working group on Parading has met everyday this week and we look forward to them concluding their work.

“Rightly there has been a broad welcome for what was agreed at Hillsborough and it is our firm belief that there is now a solid basis upon which we can collectively move forward in partnership and equality.

“As a party we have the Ard Fheis in three weeks and preparations are advanced for that and we are heading into at least one by election in this state and a Westminster election within a matter of months.

“So the coming period will be a busy one, but one filled with both challenges and opportunities for republicans.” ENDS
