Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin's growing popularity tops agenda at Labour Conference

16 April, 2004


Sinn Féin North West EU candidate Pearse Doherty has welcomed Labour leader Pat Rabbitte's acknowledgement that Sinn Féin is growing in popularity across the island but said what Mr. Rabbitte is failing to understand is that the reason for our growth is our leadership in the peace process, our work in local communities and our agenda for change.

Mr Doherty said:

"I welcome Pat Rabbitte's acknowledgement that Sinn Féin is growing in popularity across the island. What he also needs to understand is that the reason for our growth is our leadership in the peace process, our work in local communities and our agenda for change.

"We are bringing forward a positive message and empowering local communities.

"I would call on the Labour Leader not to get drawn into Minister McDowell's negative agenda but instead to work with Sinn Féin to bring about real change for Irish people."ENDS
