5 March, 2018 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD

Speaking following a meeting with EU Chief Negotiator on Brexit, Michel Barnier today, Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD said:

“Today’s meeting with Michel Barnier was very productive. We discussed the need to safeguard the Good Friday Agreement, our economy North and south, and the rights of citizens.

“We raised our continued frustration at the failure of British Government to bring forward any workable solutions to the problems caused by Brexit.

“Michel Barnier clearly understands the challenges that Brexit presents to the Good Friday Agreement.

“It is clear that the British Government can no longer hide behind rhetoric or vague aspirations.

“What is required is clarity and legal certainty for our people, our businesses, and our agreements and that is what has been absent from the British Government.”
