Adams to visit Sligo for last time as Sinn Féin leader

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adam’s to make his last visit to Sligo Leitrim constituency before he steps down as leader of the party.

Speaking in advance of the visit Deputy Martin Kenny said;

“Gerry Adam’s has visited Sligo and Leitrim countless times over the decades and has a great relationship with the people of the area and in turn the people of Sligo / Leitrim have great respect and admiration for Gerry Adam’s.

“This meeting in the Great Southern Hotel, Sligo on Thursday the 7th of December at 8pm is an opportunity Gerry to thank all those who have supported him and Sinn Fein down through the years in good time and bad times.

“It’s also about where the party is now and what is the future for Sinn Fein, Irish unity is now a live political issue now and it is within our grasp.

“Gerry has said he will continue to work for Irish unity in whatever role the party wants him to do and with our new leader Sinn Fein will continue to build on the work that Gerry Adam’s and Martin McGuinness (RIP) have done in bringing us to where we are today.”
