Newry & Armagh MP Mickey Brady has said a real living wage is essential for workers to protect citizens against poverty and deprivation, while ensuring economic growth.
Sinn Féin’s Westminster spokesperson on Welfare Rights and Anti-Poverty measures commented:
“For years, workers and families across Ireland have suffered under the economic burden of relentless austerity and chronic low pay.
“Of the OECD countries, only the US and Colombia report higher rates of law pay than the south of Ireland.
“With public services under attack and increasing numbers of families unable to make ends meet we must rethink how we ensure workers are paid fairly for their efforts.

“During Living Wage Week we must discuss progressive measures to lift workers and families from poverty and hardship. The time has come to implement a Living Wage.”

Sinn Féin Councillor Barra Ó Muirí has spoken about the shock and disgust in the community following an attack on a Cullyhanna family in their Carraig Way home last week.

“The victim of this attack was returning home from a wake house and upon entering the village had something thrown at his jeep. He shouted out the window of the vehicle to tell the assailants to stop, but instead they followed him to his home in Carraig Way.   After smashing the windscreen of the jeep, kicking in the front door of the house, with wife and children inside, the assailants set about attacking the victim and his father with an array of weapons.  Threats to shoot the family were delivered by the attackers and further threats of burning the house down with children inside were also made. After this, the assailants left the scene, but soon returned with another person, and together all three men resumed the attack and further damaged the family jeep with an iron bar. 
“I was contacted by neighbours who are understandably angry that such an unprovoked attack would take place in Cullyhanna in 2017. Both the Ambulance service and the Police attended the scene, and arrests were made. This disgraceful incident was totally unacceptable and local people are glad it didn’t result in more serious injuries or worse. The perpetrators of this crime are out of touch with the people of Cullyhanna, and on behalf of the entire community I would appeal to them to end their violent, barbaric behaviour which has become a blight on the whole area.

Over 500 people recently attended the annual Peter Corrigan lecture which was held in Armagh City Hotel. The annual lecture commemorates the former Sinn Féin member who was assassinated by a pro-British death squad on 25th October 1982. The Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams who was imprisoned along with Peter in both the Maidstone Prison Ship and in Long Kesh was the guest speaker. 
Speaking after at the event, Armagh Sinn Féin Councillor Garath Keating said,
"We're delighted to have our Party President Gerry Adams TD with us in Armagh to deliver the annual Peter Corrigan lecture. With standing room only, the large turnout is testament to both Peter's memory and in solidarity with the Corrigan family who were also in attendance. As Gerry pointed out, Peter Corrigan was both a republican and community activist who led from the front, someone who was tireless is his resolve to bring about a change in society by standing against discrimination and oppression. We must continue to remember Peter and everything he represented, but his lasting legacy will be secured by bringing about the reunification of our country and its people with the realisation of the 1916 Proclamation.

Sinn Féin’s Megan Fearon has called on the SDLP to clarify whose rights they will abandon in order to get a deal at any price.

The Newry and Armagh MLA was responding to comments made by Justin McNulty.
Megan Fearon said:
“The DUP’s refusal to accept a future based on rights and equality, an anti-rights position facilitated by a British Government dependent on the DUP for its own survival, has prevented the restoration of an Executive of locally accountable ministers.
“Justin McNulty and the SDLP should set out whose rights they want to abandon in order to get a deal at any price?
“Is it families who have been waiting for inquests for 45 years? The LGBT community our those of us who demand recognition and acceptance of Irish cultural identity?
“Sinn Féin wants to see the Executive restored to set budgets and make decisions for local people on the basis of equality, rights and respect.
“That’s the only way that an Executive can be credible and sustainable.
