Sinn Fein has re-iterated its desire for a Border Poll.
Various party members have been speaking at Easter Rising Commerations across Ireland and have used the opportunity to raise the issue.
In Belfast Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald said a poll – under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement – could end partition by peaceful means.
meanwhile in Cork the party’s Social Protection Spokesman Aengus Ó Snodaigh delivered the main oration at the Easter Rising Commemoration in Saint Finbarr’s Cemetery.
The Dublin-South TD commented on Youth Emigration, Austerity and finally on his
parties call for a North-South Referendum.
Aengus Ó Snodaighh admits that holding a referendum would have a cost, but says in the longer term the results would benefit for the economies of both the North and South
