McDonald - business can be done in Scotland
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP will tomorrow (Monday 9th) lead a senior party delegation to meet with the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in Government Buildings. The meeting will begin at 11am and Mr. Adams will be available to speak to the media afterwards. Also on the delegation will be Mary Lou McDonald MEP, Martin McGuinness MP and MLA Caitríona Ruane.
Speaking in advance of the meeting Dublin MEP Mary Lou McDonald said:
"Tomorrow's meeting with the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern will discuss the upcoming talks in Scotland. The 24th November deadline has brought a much-needed focus on the political process and I believe it is possible to get business can be done by that date. I believe that the political institutions can be restored and agreement reached in relation to all of the outstanding issues. However this will only happen if people go into this with the right attitude and not scramble about for excuses and obstacles as the deadline for progress approaches."ENDS
