Sinn Féin MEPs remember Martin McGuinness in Brussels

26 April, 2017 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MEPs have marked the late Martin McGuinness' month's mind at the European Parliament in Brussels. 

Martina Anderson said: 

"It has been a month since we lost our friend, comrade and iconic republican leader Martin McGuinness. 

"Just as people across Ireland mourned his immense loss, so too did people throughout Europe and across the world. 

"Tonight at the European Parliament in Brussels the Sinn Féin MEP team, together with friends and supporters from right across Europe gathered to pay tribute to Martin while his Month's Mind mass was being celebrated at home. 

"Martin was a regular visitor to the European Parliament and valued the continuing support from Europe for the peace process and our campaign to secure designated special status for the north within the EU. 

"It was important that we remembered Martin here tonight as we send our condolences to Bernie and all the family."
