Adams welcomes historic election of 3 Sinn Féin Senators
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has today welcomed the historic election of 3 Sinn Féin Senators including Kathryn Reilly who at 22 is the youngest ever elected Senator.
Mr. Adams said:
“This has been a great week for Sinn Féin and I want to congratulate Senators David Cullinane, Trevor Ó Clochartaigh and the youngest ever elected Senator Kathryn Reilly.
“We now have a 17-member strong Sinn Féin team in the Houses of the Oireachtas. We have a lot of work ahead of us. We have made a commitment to stand up for those on low and middle incomes, the vulnerable, the unemployed and all those who are suffering as a result of Government austerity measures.
“We will use our mandate to put forward our argument for a better fairer alternative both in the Dáil and the Seanad.
“In the Assembly and local elections next week we will return with a consolidated mandate which we will use in conjunction with our team in the south to continue on the road to a truly equal and united Ireland.”
