Seanadóir Ó Donnghaile welcomes support for United Ireland

27 May, 2016 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile

Seanadóir Niall O'Donnghaile has welcomed comment from Archbishop Eamon Martin about his personal aspiration to see a united Ireland and rejected unionist criticism as faux outrage.

Niall Ó Donnghaile said:

“Archbishop Martin’s personal aspiration for a United Ireland is shared by the vast majority of the people of Ireland.

“His remarks are a valuable contribution to the national debate for a united Ireland and to the process of national reconciliation on this island between nationalists and unionists.

“Attempts by some unionist politicians to suggest that expressing legitimate support for a United Ireland deflects from the process of reconciliation are preposterous and are little more than faux outrage.”
