Armagh Assembly member Cathal Boylan has participated in a joint meeting of Sinn Féin elected representatives held in Stormont Buildings on 30th April 2012.

Describing the rationale for such a meeting Mr Boylan said; “The meeting between the Sinn Féin team in the Assembly and our counterparts in Leinster House represents just one of a number of joined up initiatives which Sinn Féin has planned across the country. The issues facing people in their daily lives in the North and South of Ireland are largely the same. Economic and social issues do not respect the border and for this reason a number of our TDs and MLAs have come together to discuss issues affecting all of the people of the island.”

Among other items this meeting was used to discuss local government reform, climate change, fracking and waste management, the community and voluntary sector and the effects of austerity cuts on people’s lives. “The agenda was formulated around certain key issues for Sinn Féin” Mr Boylan said, “In my capacity as an Environment Committee member and Sinn Féin spokesperson on Planning and RPA I was particularly interested to hear my southern counterpart, Brian Stanley’s update on the situation in the 26 counties in relation to these issues.”

“This was a productive meeting and one which will be replicated over the coming months in our efforts to improve the quality of life for people across Ireland,” he added.
