Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle meet in Dublin to discuss strategy for return of Assembly on May 15th
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP speaking as the party leadership met to discuss their strategy for the return of the Assembly on May 15th “appealed to the DUP to play a leading role in ensuring that the marching season is peaceful.
The Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle also paid tribute to the courage and determination of the 1981 Hunger Strikers and sent solidarity greetings to their families. Commemorations will continue across the country this weekend to mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Bobby Sands after 66 days on hunger strike.
Mr. Adams said:
“Sinn Fein will be in the Assembly on May 15th to try and bring about the return of the power sharing government. This is the business that the Assembly members were elected to do. The electorate has been waiting for almost three years for this to happen.
“Everyone knows that the coming months will be difficult. We are also facing into another marching season. This situation will only be made worse if the political vacuum continues.
“I want to urge the DUP to play a leading role in ensuring that the marching season is peaceful.”ENDS
