SDLP/Fianna Fail talks coming to a conclusion.

In today’s Irish News, Claire Simpson reports a message from the SDLP Leader, Colum Eastwood and the Deputy Leader, Nichola Mallon to the party membership about discussions with Fianna Fail. 

It says;

“Our discussions have been based on how best to meet the challenges of Brexit, how best to restore the institutions of the Good Friday Agreement and how best to ensure that our values of reconciliation and the unity of our people can once again enter into the lifeblood of our politics,” the message read.

“These talks have been discussed, sanctioned and supported by our MLA team, our councillors’ association and at our management committee.

“These talks are coming to a conclusion and we will of course share with you any proposal which emanates from them.”
