Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Trade Darragh O’Brien has congratulated James Brokenshire MP on his appointment as Northern Ireland Secretary of State.
Deputy O’Brien said, “I want to take this opportunity to congratulate James Brokenshire on his appointment as Northern Ireland Secretary of State. I look forward to meeting with him at the earliest opportunity and working constructively together.
“His appointment comes at a hugely important time, with the outworkings of the Brexit vote playing a fundamental role in the future of Northern Ireland. There is also serious work to be done for victims, dealing with the legacy of the past and ensuring the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.
"I wish him well and look forward to working with him to meet all of these challenges."
