Sinn Fein - New Force in Local Government

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP responding to Sinn Fein's significant gains so far in todays local government election results in the 26 counties said:

``Sinn Fein will emerge from this election as a significant political force in local government in the 26 Counties. Our gains indicate an increasing support for our radical republican labour policies and I am confident that this is only the start of greater progress in the time ahead.

``I want to thank all of those who voted Sinn Fein and to pledge our determination to follow through on the policies and promises we have made.''
