Mary Lou McDonald comments on resignation of Carol Nolan TD
Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald regrets the resignation from Sinn Féin today of Deputy Carol Nolan, describing it as as disappointing but not surprising.
Speaking this afternoon McDonald said;
“I very much regret Carol’s decision to resign from Sinn Féin. Her resignation is disappointing but not surprising.
"Sinn Féin made every effort to give its members space and latitude to articulate a position contrary to the party’s position in the recent referendum campaign on Repeal of the 8th Amendment.
“The people have spoken on this issue. The Sinn Féin Ard Fheis has democratically agreed the party’s position to support the forthcoming leglislation.”
“I wish Carol and her family well.”
