Morgan calls on Taoiseach to intervene in Crossmaglen demilitarisation dispute

4 July, 2006


Louth Sinn Féin TD Arthur Morgan called on the Taoiseach to immediately intervene following the announcement by the British Authorities that they are going to hold on to land belonging to residents adjoining the British military base in Crossmaglen.

Speaking in the Dáil today Deputy Morgan said, “The Taoiseach must immediately intervene following the announcement by the British occupying authorities that they are going to hold onto land belonging to residents adjoining the British military base in Crossmaglen.  There is an urgent need for real progress in removing all huge British military monstrosities from Irish towns and the Taoiseach must show a commitment to achieving this.

“There is also a need for a real commitment from this house to deal with this issue seriously, to show the people of Crossmaglen and other deeply militarised zones that this house will not accept a British Government betrayal of any of its Good Friday Agreement commitments including demilitarisation.” ENDS
