Thirteen Billion owed to Irish people can bolster building blocks of Unity – Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile

10 September, 2016 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile

Sinn Féin Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile has slammed the decision by the Irish Government to appeal the Apple tax ruling and has said that the money owed to the Irish people can help bolster the natural and practical building blocks for Irish Unity.

Speaking today Seanadóir Ó Donnghaile said;

“In a climate of increased uncertainty brought about as a result of the English vote to leave the EU, there is a clear impetus to advance the spirit and measures required to ensure Ireland is in no way disadvantaged as a result.

“The Taoiseach has already acknowledged that the EU must prepare for the eventuality of reunification, but so too must the Irish Government.

“They must work with colleagues across Ireland and the EU to progress the practical matters of infrastructural improvement, greater cross-border & connected health initiatives, promoting Ireland’s tourism, conference and investment opportunities in their entirety and supporting peace-building, conflict transformation and reconciliation projects.

“It is to its great shame that the Irish Government is to appeal the Apple tax ruling.

“This government has made clear that its priority is the welfare and wellbeing of major corporations. Sinn Féin will continue to stand up for all of the Irish people."
