Smith to attend SDLP annual conference in Armagh

Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs & Border Region Development Brendan Smith TD will attend the SDLP’s annual conference in Armagh this evening.

Deputy Smith commented, “This Conference comes at a pivotal time for politics in Northern Ireland, as the future of devolved government is once again under the spotlight. The SDLP played an integral role in bringing about the Good Friday Agreement, which was the bedrock on which the peace process was built.

“I sincerely hope that the SDLP along with the other parties in the Stormont Executive, along with the two Governments, will be able to bring the latest negotiations to a successful conclusion. It is essential that outstanding issues are dealt with comprehensively and that the full potential of the Good Friday Agreement is brought to bear”.
