The Sinn Féin leadership will hold a press conference in Dublin today. It will take place in Jury's Hotel, Ballsbridge at 4pm in the Martello Room. The press conference in Dublin will coincide with press conferences in Washington and London and briefings in Brussels.
The Dublin press conference will be led by Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams. He will be accompanied by Sinn Féin MEPs, TDs, MPs and MLAs.
Speaking before the press conference the Sinn Féin President said: "The forthcoming IRA statement will challenge Irish Republicans and nationalists. I appeal to everyone to carefully read what the Army has to say and to remain united and steadfast.
"The IRA statement will also challenge others, especially the two governments and the Unionists.
"The Dublin political establishment in particular will have a lot of soul searching to do, if those in political leadership are to meet the needs of the upcoming period."
