Several Brother Hibernians from throughout NYS attended an event on March 16, 2018 at the Times Square Sheraton. The event was an opportunity for Friends of Sinn Féin USA to introduce party leadership to the Irish American community. In attendance was current party head, Leader Mary Lou McDonald, TD. and joining her was former Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams, TD, who led the political party from 1983 until 2018.
According to the group’s Facebook posting, Ms. McDonald outlined a vision and pathway to achieve a new and united Ireland. She invited those who support Irish Unity to continue to work, to lobby and to campaign for unity and made clear Brexit cannot be allowed to impose a hard border across Ireland.
