Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams TD opened the party’s new offices in Derry yesterday. The new constituency offices have moved from the Rathmore Centre to the nearby Rathmore Business Park.
Speaking at the opening, Mr. Adams said it was now time for a border poll.
“The Good Friday Agreement allows for a border poll,” he said. “It must be the next step. Now is exactly the right time for a debate on ending partition and achieving Irish unity in the context of rebuilding and calibrating the economies of this island into a single island economy in the interests of all our citizens.”
“On Thursday evening I opened a new Sinn Féin office in Trim in County Meath. Today I am in Derry opening another Sinn Féin office. This is tangible evidence of the all-Ireland nature of Sinn Féin and the growth of the party. Sinn Féin’s political message is coherent and consistent across the island. It is about protecting public services; disadvantaged communities; families on low and middle incomes; for fair taxes; investing in jobs; and growing the all-Ireland economy,” he said.
