Sinn Fein urged to stay away from Dail after Bobby Storey funeral

Mary Lou McDonald and Sinn Fein TDs and officials are facing calls to stay away from the Dail for two weeks after they attended former IRA member Bobby Storey's funeral.

Ms McDonald, her predecessor Gerry Adams, deputy leader Michelle O'Neill and a number of Sinn Fein TDs and MLAs, including Pearse Doherty, attended the funeral of Mr Storey, a senior figure in the republican movement, in west Belfast which drew a reported crowd of around 1,800 people on Tuesday.
