11 May, 2017 - by Kathleen Funchion TD


Sinn Féin TD for Carlow/Kilkenny Kathleen Funchion today met with Britain’s Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla at Kilkenny Castle.

Speaking after the meeting Teachta Funchion said;

“As a  Sinn Féin TD, as Chair of the Oireachtas Good Friday Agreement Implementation Committee and as joint chair of the British Irish Inter Parliamentary Association, I believe that If we are to promote reconciliation we must demonstrate respect. 

“While I acknowledge that this is a difficult issue for some republicans I believe that it is the right thing to do.

“This is about building on the work of Martin McGuinness and others.

“It is about demonstrating that in our vision of a new and united Ireland all identities and traditions will be respected.”
