Gerry Adams congratulates Sinn Féin’s new all Ireland Seanad team
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has congratulated his party’s new team of seven Senators who were elected this week.
Deputy Adams said he is delighted to have all seven Seanad candidates elected, bringing a new all Ireland team to the Seanad, including Senators from all corners of Ireland.
Teachta Adams said;
“To have elected all seven of our Seanad candidates is a great achievement and each of them will be a strong voice for equality, fairness and Irish unity in the Oireachtas, joining an enlarged Sinn Féin team in Leinster House.
“Our new Seanad team is an all Ireland one, with Senators elected from all corners of Ireland including Niall Ó Donnghaile from my own city of Belfast who will be an excellent representative and a voice for Northern citizens in the Oireachtas.
“I also want to extend my congratulations to the other progressive Seanadoirí elected this week and I hope we can work together on issues of common interest over the coming time, just as we are seeking similar alliances in the Dáil.”
