Today @moneillsf and I launched @sinnfeinireland’s plan to extend the globally recognised Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland's Ancient East and the Hidden Heartlands into the north. Growing all island tourism can create jobs and put money back into communities and workers' pockets.

Great to meet community representatives in West Belfast. Fantastic to hear of the positive difference our Communities in Transition programme is making to communities and families. Those delivering the programme deserve huge credit for helping communities and people to thrive.

Launching new Sinn Féin document on fulfilling the all-Ireland tourism potential. We must work as one island to promote our beautiful landscapes, rich history and vibrant cultures. Tourism has great potential in creating jobs, growing businesses and supporting local communities

Fantastic visit to Cookstown Library this morning for #BookWeekNI. Great to hear from Holy Trinity PS pupils about what they love to read. No matter what you enjoy reading, try to make time for a good book. And #LoveYourLibrary - they’re a fantastic asset in our communities! 📚

A majority of Sinn Féin MLAs are women, this is a first on this island when it comes to women’s representation in politics. I’m extremely proud of all these women who have stepped forward to deliver for families and workers. Sinn Féin is driving forward real and positive change

The Department of Health must act to ensure people can get a GP appointment when they need one. We need more nurses, mental health staff, physiotherapists and vaccinators in practices to support GPs. Read Sinn Féin's GP survey findings: bit.ly/3jctf25 @GildernewColm

The message being sent out by the DUP and UUP is that when it comes to the position of First Minister, no Nationalist need apply. They need to understand that the days of second-class citizenship are over and they’re not coming back!

An absolute pleasure to host our inspirational Olympic and Paralympic athletes at Stormont Their commitment and perseverance during these difficult times has been outstanding and they should be so proud of all they’ve achieved

The protocol contains necessary, bottom line protections to mitigate the worst of the Tory Brexit. The vast majority on this island - North and South- recognise and accept this. British Govt belligerence and bad faith must end. Only then can solutions be found.

Most guys don’t look in the mirror & see a problem. But it’s staring us in the face. Sexual violence begins long before you think it does. #DontBeThatGuy

Brexit is the problem. The protocol is the solution. Today’s EU proposals are welcome, they will give certainty and make the protocol work easier. The DUP should spend less time on internal disputes, looking over the shoulder at the TUV and the division of political unionism.
