Cuid dá raibh faoi chaibidil ag Gearóid Mc Adaim ina chaint le hArd Fheis Shinn Féin

A chairde,

Tá failte romhaibh uilig chuig Ard Fheis Shinn Féin.

A special Céad Míle Fáilte to Friends of Sinn Féin from the USA, Canada and Australia; to our comrades from South Africa, Palestine, Cuba, the Basque country, Britain and to all our foreign dignitaries.

Ta mé an-sásta a bheith anseo i Loch Garman.

Áit in ar chruthaigh saoránaigh éirí amach seacht déag nócha a hocht a phoblacht féin. Loch Garman de Éirí Amach naoi déag sé déag. Loch Garman, áit dúchais an t-óglach Ed O’Brien.

Le stair chomh saibhir le sin tá Sinn Féin an-sásta a bheith anseo do ár Ard Fheis.

 

Lots of money for consultants, investors, bankers and politicians but little for disabled children.

Most citizens do understand that difficult choices must be made.

But what they resent is the unfair way this is being done.

Tá a fhios ag daoine go bhfuil bealach eile ann. Bealach níos fearr. Bealach atá bunaithe ar chomhionannas.

Instead, our society has become increasingly polarized between ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’, ruled over by a Government which is increasingly arrogant.

The arrogance that dismisses concerns about Fracking.

The arrogance that breaches pay caps for Ministerial advisors but cuts the Carer’s Allowance, Home-Help hours and hikes up prescription charges.

The arrogance that ignores community health concerns at the construction of Pylons.

 

The Government is not just failing on the economy or public services.

Look at what it is doing to the Irish language, to the future of the Gaeltacht, to the rights of Irish speakers and the very survival of our native language.

The resignation of Coimisinéir Teanga Seán Ó Cuirreáin over the failure to provide services through Irish is a damning indictment of Fine Gael and Labour.

 

Today, this day, 240 people have left Ireland.  That is 240 devastated families.

Enda Kenny, our Taoiseach insults all of these families when he dismisses this as the desire of young people to travel.

Tá na daoine óga seo ag imirt peile, camógaíochta, agus iomanaíochta, san Astráil, i gCeanada, sna Stáit Aontaithe, i  Sasana, agus in áiteanna eile ar fud an domhain.

For some parents, all their children have left. They are the Skype generation, the scattering — given a final push out of the country by targeted dole cuts and the exploitation of Jobsbridge.

These 400,000 people and their families know exactly who is responsible for their forced emigration.

That’s why there is no Government Taskforce on emigration.

That’s why there is no vote for the diaspora that would give them a stake in our country.

Gan aon obair anseo, ní bheidh daoine óga ábalta fanacht. Tá siad fágtha gan mórán dóchas, agus gan aon rogha eile ach bogadh thar sáille.

 

Rinneadh neart dul cun cinn le linn an próiséas a bhí faoi stiriú ag Richard Haass agus Meghan O’Sullivan i Mí na Nollaig.

Ghlac Sinn Féin leis na tograí.

Let’s be clear. Issues like Acht Na Gaeilge, a Bill of Rights and the Long Kesh site, are not going away. Let us also be clear. These issues will be resolved. So too will issues of identity and contentious Orange parades.

 

Táimid ag éirí i bhfad níos láidre. Mar sin tá an Bhunaíocht ag déanamh ionsaí orainn. Ach tá teachtaireacht againn do na elites. Tá Sinn Féin anseo agus níl muid ag dul áit ar bith, ach ar aghaidh.
