Kelly calls on Government to do more for re-unification

Sinn Fein's Gerry Kelly has told an Easter commemoration in Donegal that the Irish government should be doing more to prepare for re-unification.

Speaking at the Drumboe commemoration at Ballybofey, Mr. Kelly said progress made in the past year had been both momentous and extraordinary.

He continued on to say that if 1916 was a turning point in Irish history, the agreement last year between Sinn F€in and DUP was the latest crucial event in driving the republican struggle forward.

Mr Kelly concluded by saying that unionism no longer has a veto over Irish unity, and he said that though "orangeism" remains, the spectre of the orange state has gone, never to return.
