Fianna Fáil Leader has no credibility in the North - Murphy
Sinn Féin's Conor Murphy has said Micheal Martin and Fianna Fáil have lost all credibility with recent comments on the political institutions in the north.
Mr Murhpy said;
"Michael Martin last year called for the suspension of the institutions in the north despite the fact that those institutions that were voted for the vast majority of the Irish people. Such an approach would have shut the Northern Executive and the Assembly for a generation.
"His recent comments clearly have more to do electoral considerations in the south and offer nothing constructive to citizens in the north.
"Micheal Martin has squandered any credibility his party had with regards to playing a positive and constructive role in the peace process with these ill-informed and ill-judged comments about the Executive and Assembly.
"If Micheal Martin and Fianna Fáil are serious about contrinuting to the north, they should take their views to the people and stand in the upcoming Assembly election. They have refused to this and instead prefer to snipe from the side-lines."
