Friel welcomes Lo remarks

Sinn Féin representative Liam Friel has described the unionist response to Alliance MLA Anna Lo’s support for a united Ireland as “predictable.”

Unionist politicians called on the Alliance European candidate to apologise for her views.

“I would appeal to unionists to engage in a debate on the way forward for all the people of this island rather than attempt to denigrate anyone,” Mr Friel said.
