"an Sinn Fein MLA from Northern Ireland."

Do you not know his/her name and since when did republicans call the six counties NORTHERN IRELAND. Just another sign SF have fully accepted Brithish Rule in Eire.

It was Barry McElduff MLA from West Tyrone.

The use of the word "Northern Ireland" was only issued in the typed press release because individual cumann members felt that while we do not accept the partition of North and South, it still exists and therefore the proper title should be used in a public press release.

We are still devoted to working for a single and united Ireland of equals, regardless of the terminology used.
