11 February, 2017 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has stated that the party will table a motion of no confidence in what she described as a "kick for touch, cover up" government.

Deputy McDonald said;

"People the length and breadth of Ireland are rightly outraged by what has transpired over the course of the last week.

"The government is clearly unable to deal with the major issues facing our people.

"The hospital waiting list scandal has exposed the government's complete failure to deal with the crisis in our health service.

"The manner in which they have handled the scandalous campaign of character assassination against Sergeant Maurice McCabe renders this government unfit for public office.

"The behaviour of government, particularly over the last week, has eroded public confidence in this coalition in the most fundamental and profound ways.

"Their chaotic behaviour and blatant disregard for transparent government mean that a General Election is now necessary

"Sinn Féin will table a motion of no confidence in this kick for touch, cover up government without delay.

"We will be seeking support for this motion of no confidence from all opposition TDs and Fianna Fáil."
