‘It will be the  people of this island who will decide our future in a referendum’ – Finucane 

 Sinn Féin MP John Finucane has said the people of Ireland will decide our future in a referendum as set out in the terms of the Good Friday Agreement. 

Following comments made by the Tánaiste today, John Finucane said: 

“Ultimately It will be the people of this island who will decide our future in a democratic referendum in line with the provisions and conditions that are set out within the Good Friday Agreement.

“The conversation on the constitutional future of our island is thriving right now across all sections of society. Planning and preparation must start now. 

“The Irish government should lead those preparations by immediately establishing a Citizens’ Assembly on Irish unity to help shape the new Ireland.

“Everyone should have a say in helping to shape a new Ireland to ensure it is reflective and representative of all its citizens and is the best it can be with a strong public health system, a vibrant economy, good public services and affordable housing.”
