Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Stand up for Donegal, stand up for Ireland – Adams

21 November, 2010 - by Pat Sheehan, Westminster


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams is in Donegal with Senator Pearse Doherty for the last weekend of canvassing in the Donegal South West by-election.

Speaking this morning in Gaoth Dobhair Mr Adams said:

“This government is not trusted by the Irish people, and for good reason.

“There is no confidence in it here or on the international markets.

“For the past week government Ministers have tried to mislead citizens about the IMF/EU/ECB bailout.

“The government has made political choices which created and deepened the economic crisis. Government policy has burdened citizens with huge debts. All of this to bailout the banks.

“The people of Donegal South West have a chance this Thursday to have their say on these issues in a by-election which the government tried to prevent. Without Sinn Féin and Pearse Doherty there would be no by-election.

“I am calling upon voters here to make a stand. Stand up for Donegal and stand up for Ireland.” ENDS
