Uachtarán Shinn Féin Mary Lou McDonald has thanked both Megan Fearon and Máirtín Ó Muilleoir as they step down from the Assembly.
The Sinn Féin President said:
“I would like to thank Megan and Máirtín for their many years of hard work and service on behalf of Sinn Féin.
“Both were excellent MLAs providing first class representation in their constituencies and also on the Executive where both served with distinction as ministers.
“I have known both for many years and they are hardworking and dedicated representatives, committed to improving the quality of life for all.
“I wish both of them well in the future and I’m confident they will continue working to build a new and united Ireland.
“I’m sure whoever is selected to replace them will provide the same high standard of representation for the people they represent.”
