SDLP Reconciliation Spokesperson Justin McNulty MLA has said it is welcome news that An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar will be the first representative from the Irish Government to make the historic visit to Schomberg House.

The MLA for Newry and Armagh commented, “An Taoiseach’s visit to Schomberg House is a powerful illustration of the Peace Process in action.



“Credit must also go to the Orange Order for opening their doors to the Irish Government for the first time.



“As political tensions in the North seem to rise as the impasse continues into its eighteenth month, historic acts like these are a great remember of how far we have come in the North,” he added.
