Whether the reign of King Charles III. Will advance Irish unity is “an interesting question,” said Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald, adding that she is optimistic that will be the case.
Ms McDonald, who peaked in Dublin, appeared surprised by the question as she addressed a press conference calling for large turnout in a livelihoods demonstration for the Dáil on Saturday afternoon.
“If you ask me whether the arrival of King Charles III will ease the cost of living crisis, the answer is a resounding no,” she said.
She added: “I think, to be fair to colleagues on the platform, that’s a very interesting question for another day, which I’ll be happy to explore with you.
“But I think it’s fair to say that on the one hand the last few days have shown how far we’ve come. But I think they also paint a constitutional picture of how far we still have to go and how far we can go.
“So I’m very optimistic on that front.”
