Sinn Féin delegation to raise loyalist violence with Dermot Ahern
Sinn Féin North Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly, North Antrim MLA Philip McGuigan, North Belfast councillor Margaret McClenaghan will meet Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern today, Thursday 8th September, at 5.30 pm in the Irish Secretariat Offices in Windsor House Belfast.
Speaking ahead of the meeting Mr Kelly said:
"The political vacuum is being filled, as it always is, by unionist sectarian violence.
"The Irish government must defend the rights of nationalists. They must stop ignoring the loyalist violence and the ambivalence of the PSNI towards it. They must stand up for the rights of nationalist communities. This will be our message to Dermot Ahern today." ENDS
