Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald says Conor Murphy will make a statement over comments he made about Paul Quinn and will see the Quinn family, but will not be stepping down from his position as Northern Ireland's Finance Minister | Read more:

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has said she will not ask Conor Murphy to step down or remove him from his position as Northern Ireland's Finance Minister after the allegation that Paul Quinn was involved in criminality before he was murdered.

"And when he has that done I want him to go to the gardaí and the PSNI and give the names of the IRA men that he spoke to in Cullyhanna. They reassured him that they didn't do it. Why has he left us 13 years - fighting, crying?"At the time, Conor Murphy, accused Mr Quinn of being involved in criminality.

"That family have been through a horrible ordeal, I mean I can't even imagine, to lose their son in such a brutal way." "It's extremely important for the collective good and stability, so no, there's absolutely no question of that." "His apology is sincere, and I hope the Quinn family take comfort from that and are assured that everybody in every stage are very forceful in saying that the people who took their son's life need to be brought to justice.

People are looking for change. My opinion is Sinn Fein would make Fianna Fáil look totally honest.

Sorry Mary Lou but he needs to be fired.

MaryLouMcDonald says....I really shouldn't have done that debate.

RTE doing there 'impartial ' best in this election to railroad the growing support for SF.

In other words, he's sorry but not that sorry 😂 Sinn Fein needed to realise that we remember things, no matter how long ago

sinnfeinireland lack of credibility with regard to such an act of evil is enough for many to stay away from them. If they can't be straight on evil murder, unlikely they are too straight on other matters. That said raising of this issue is deliberate Irish Establishment PR

Yet she hounded Maria Bailey over making the compensation claim, the bigger issue here is if sinnfeinireland have nothing to do with the IRA then how would they know the IRA didn’t kill Paul Quinn? He’s only apologising because he’s been told to by the powers that be

Vote SF .... vote for change

If they refuse to meet Sinn Fein well that’s their prerogative, let’s move on.....

Took SF 12 years and now media spotlight during an election.... To give the Quinn family a little comfort and an apology....

what about berties comments on this matter ? have FF an apology to make ? double standards from irelands version of Fox news

you'd swear coveney had a brother working there as a strategist for fg/gff.... i mean rte Very quiet themselves after the tribunal in relation to the father eoghan muyrphys grandad ripping off gay byrne we dont see all parties dragging up the personal dirt do we ?

Shame on you RTE for bringing up Paul Quinn for political gain why was this not bought up in the last decade. Sinn Féin will definitely get my vote now

Still wearing the balaclava. If people are looking for an alternative to FG/FF these aren't it.

I believe Quinn family have rejected SF meeting.

So, with an election in a few days .. he issues an apology . 🤦🏻‍♀️

What a fraud!!! Covering trust in such a pathetic party

On Mature recollection,

Will fiannafailparty and Bertie Ahern do the same then?

No, because lying about why Sinn Fein and the IRA killed someone isn't important. 'Course, killing them also isn't important. The state of politics in Ireland today.
