The Dáil is debating Northern Ireland – this will be a regular event! I was happy last night to have the opportunity to outline People Before Profit’s attitude to such issues as Brexit, Women’s and and LGBT+ rights, Irish unity & the language, the DUP and corruption.

I’m very proud that our People Before Profit MLAs – Gerry Carroll and Eamonn McCann, were the first to highlight this issue in Stormount and demand change. Lessons here for the South
