Leinster House, Dublin 2
Sinn Fein TDs, including Mary Lou McDonald and Pearse Doherty, address reporters about the surprise resignation of Martin McGuinness and the forthcoming Northern Ireland Assembly election.
Mr McGuinness resigned in protest at the Democratic Unionist Party’s handling of a botched renewable energy scheme.
I deeply appreciate the thousands of messages of support & good wishes that I & my family have received since yesterday. #ManyThanks
