Adams welcomes Drogheda Mayor's resignation from Fine Gael
Sinn Féin Leader and Louth TD Gerry Adams has welcomed the decision of Fine Gael Mayor of Drogheda, Kevin Callan to resign from Fine Gael in protest at the government’s handling of the water charges issue.
Gerry Adams said:
"I commend the action of the Mayor of Drogheda, Kevin Callan in resigning from Fine Gael.
"He has clearly witnessed the people's anger over water charges and has recognised that the Fine Gael leadership is not listening.
"I would hope that others in Fine Gael and Labour follow Mr Callan's example and stand with the people rather than the Government on this issue."
