Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle, or I should call you "a mháistir"? I wish to associate myself with his comments. On behalf of Sinn Féin, I wish to commend all of the staff in Leinster House, including the caterers, the ushers and the cleaners, who have guided us during us this term. Hopefully, we will all be back here in good health, safe and sound, for the next session in the autumn.
Over the past few days we have seen effigies of my party colleagues, Deputy McDonald and Ms Michelle O'Neill MLA, along with the Alliance Party Leader, Ms Naomi Long MLA, in addition to our national flag being burned on unionist bonfires. This is not culture; it is a hate crime. It is unacceptable. Shockingly, we have heard nothing from the Taoiseach. An effigy of the Leader of the Opposition was burned on a bonfire 90 miles up the road and there was no official reaction from the Government. It is not good enough. It is also not good enough from unionist political leaders and not good enough from the PSNI and political leaders in this State. I ask the Tánaiste to join with me in unequivocally condemning these actions.
