Useful visit to Stormont

Statement from Sinn Fein peace negotiator, Gerry Kelly, commenting on the party's presence at Stormont this morning.

Mr. Kelly said:

``Our presence at Stormont today was to familiarise ourselves with the administration. We held a meeting with members of the Irish government, and briefly met the SDLP, the Labour Party and Women's Coalition. It was a useful visit.''


The Sinn Fein delegation was led by Gerry Kelly and included Sinn Fein Councillors Francis Molloy and Annie Armstrong, both elected in the Forum election last year and Siobhan O'Hanlon, Secretary to Sinn Fein's negotiating team.
