Taoiseach must ensure democratic rights of all citizens are protected - Ó Donnghaile

26 July, 2016 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile


Sinn Féin Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile has said the Taoiseach should ensure the democratic rights of the people of Ireland are respected. 

Speaking ahead of the first meeting of the Good Friday Agreement committee of the 32nd Dáil, Seanadóir Ó Donnghaile said; 

"It has been disappointing that Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been flip flopping in his comments over Irish unity. 

"Enda Kenny has an obligation to defend the rights of Irish citizens regardless of where they live in the island. 

"He also has a responsibility to defend the Good Friday Agreement and to ensure it is not undermined by the votes of people in England. 

"Regardless of whether he is in a meeting in Leinster House, Stormont, or Downing Street the Taoiseach needs to put the democratic rights of the people of Ireland first and ensure their vote to remain in the EU is respected."
