Sinn Féin National Chairperson, Foyle MLA Mitchel McLaughlin has wished the Washington Ireland Program, formerly known as the Young Leaders Programme, well for the future.

Mr McLaughlin said:

"This programme has given many young people from across Ireland a great opportunity for the past 10 years. Many people active in politics today, including very active young politicians such as Sue Ramsey, Dara O'Hagan and Chris McManus have benefited from this programme, as have many other emerging talents throughout Irish civic and political life.

"I wish this programme all the best for the future." ENDS
