Following a series of engagements with diaspora groups in London, Sinn Féin Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile has encouraged them to get #ReferendumReady ahead of next May’s planned vote on Presidential Voting Rights.

Speaking from London this afternoon, Senator Ó Donnghaile said;

“Full and equal citizenship, including the right of the Diaspora and citizens in the North, to vote in Presidential elections, is a positive advance for everyone in Irish life.

“In the campaign ahead the diaspora networks around the world will have a decisive role, it is encouraging to hear that the groups in London are energised on this issue.

"I look forward to continued engagement across the political, civic and community spectrum, to ensure the rights of the diaspora are realised at nexts year’s vote.”
