McGuinness focused on finding political agreement
Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness announced today that he would remain in Ireland to focus on finding political agreement rather than travelling to the US for St Patrick’s Day.
Martin McGuinness said:
“The number one priority for me and my party is finding a resolution to the difficulties currently facing the Executive.
“The Sinn Féin team and I have engaged in this work positively and constructively.
“Progress has been made in talks between the parties but there is still a lot of work to be done.
“I have decided to focus on finding a resolution and will therefore not be travelling to the US to take part in events marking St Patrick’s Day.”
