My good friend and colleague @MickeyBradySF laying a Wreath on behalf of the Sinn Fein Leadership at the Grave of Wolf Tone Bodenstown Churchyard earlier today @newryarmaghsf

Honoured to meet the South African Freedom Fighter Ronnie Kasrils tonight in Tí Chulainn for the launch of his latest book, 'International Brigade Against Apartheid.’

I have spoken with @john_mcareavey to offer solidarity to both the McAreavey and Harte families. Hate and sectarianism have no place in our society. People deserve better. Love over hate will always win out.

Today has been a missed opportunity, as the DUP again blocked an Executive forming.

We have £421 million to support people as the cost-of-living rises.

& a plan to invest an extra £1bn in our health service.

The DUP must stop punishing people, & work with us to deliver change.

This week I was proud to accompany @RelsForJustice families as they handed a letter into 10 Downing Street setting out their opposition to the shameful legacy bill.
This legislation will deny families truth & justice, & to wrap it in the language of reconciliation is shameful.

”We are once again numbed in here.....
God bless Mr & Mrs Hughes and the extended family”.

DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson skips over to Belfast gets elected as MLA, pulls down the Assembly Executive, threatens ‘perpetual instability’ abandons the seat in that Assembly,and skips back to secure his own future in Westminster! Showing contempt for voters.
Very Leaderly-not!

What a day! What a game! What a fine group of young men! A massive thank you to @Stevie_Poacher and @kevin_mcclorey who put in a huge amount of hours after school with this group of players. Hard luck to @StKevinCollege. The spirit and determination from your team was fantastic.

We invite anyone interested in undertaking a non-playing role within the club to a meeting tomorrow evening in the Canal Court @ 8pm, we need your help in planning and building for the future. Tea and Coffee will be provided. Please share with anyone who might be interest.

In Southwark Cathedral with @gildernewm and @MickeyBradySF for the world premier of ‘Where the Birds Sing’ - an organ composition dedicated to all of those touched by the conflict in the North.

Party leaders met again this morning. I and other party leaders have appealed to Jeffrey Donaldson to nominate to the executive so that we can agree the allocation of £300m to support families through the cost of living crisis. The DUP should do the right thing.

Community Associations across Newry City have come together to organise a rally this Saturday to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine 🇺🇦

🔹Please come out and show your support at Newry City Hall this Saturday 1pm 🔹

We must sincerely thank Mary Fay who conceived the idea of a tribute to Kevin, had the bench and plaque made, organised the night and looked after us. Such a lady and a good heart! We are proud to call her our friend!

#HappyInternationalWomensDay to the strongest woman I know @Mccoydonna29 diagnosed with #MND 25.03.21 & up every morning with a #Smile @doitfordonna67

Attended @ABCCultureNI showcase in Westminster today, proud to show our support for this bid which will be a huge opportunity for Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon #ABC25

If we want greater representation of women, we must break down barriers so women can fully participate in political life. I spoke to @bbctheview about my experiences as an MLA & a mum, & the impact of no maternity leave provisions for elected reps. See it tonight, BBC @ 10.35pm https://twitter.com/bbctheview/status/1496906736707543046

bbctheview @bbctheview

In the majority of jobs maternity leave is a given - not so if you are a Stormont MLA, minister, or a local councillor.

@Elaine_McGee10 hears from some of our local politicians.

More on @BBCTheView tonight at 10;55pm

Today I met & gave my support to Fiona Donohoe.

I have written to the British Secretary of State & PSNI Chief Constable, to raise serious concerns on the PSNI applying for a Public Interest Immunity certificate to withhold evidence.

Fiona Donohoe deserves transparency & answers

I visited Louth today to meet with management of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital & Louth County Hospital. I also met with the Southern Trust in the North with @sinnfeinireland elected reps to make the case for a vision, a plan & more cross border services at Daisy Hill Hospital

Desperately sad news of the sudden passing of DUP Assembly member Christopher Stalford. On behalf of the Sinn Féin Assembly team I extend our condolences and I express my sincere sympathy to his wife Laura and their four children who are foremost in our thoughts this afternoon.

Terribly sad news re: Christopher Stalford

Always found him generous & kind spirited, a really decent community representative who was incorrigibly proud of his roots

Heartbreaking for his young family, who he adored, they will no doubt find strength in his memory

50 years ago today, people from across Ireland & the globe gathered in huge numbers in Newry.
They marched against Internment & for civil rights in supreme & total defiance of the Orange State & British army.
This massive demonstration took place just 1 week after Bloody Sunday.
