Sinn Féin Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile has called on the Irish Government to ‘defend the Good Friday Agreement’ from British Home Office attempts to undermine it and the rights of Irish citizens.
Speaking after joining citizenship campaigners Emma and Jake De Souza at Belfast’s High Court today, Niall Ó Donnghaile said:
“This is a crucial day for Emma De Souza and her long fight with the Home Office to be legally accepted as an Irish citizen.
“Her campaign has shone a light on attempts by the British Government to undermine Irish citizenship and the Good Friday Agreement.
“As co-guarantors of that agreement, there is now an onus on the Irish Government to defend it from British Home Office attempts to undermine it.” Críoch/Ends
