Deputy Marc MacSharry.
Sligo/Leitrim Fianna Fáil TD, Marc MacSharry, has congratulated the volunteers on both sides of the Referendum 2018 campaign for their efforts over the last few months.
Speaking to www.leitrimobserver.ie, Deputy MacSharry said: "The people have spoken and the outcome is clear. I fully respect that. It has always been a personal matter for me but one I was happy to state publicly given my position as a TD.
"I did not take a profile position throughout the campaign as I believe protagonists from civil society on both sides were those best to promote the key issues. I congratulate the many volunteers from both sides for their efforts over the last number of months.
"My responsibility is now to ensure that the legislation which follows adequately provides for woman and families in line with the will of the people.“
