Martin Ferris.

GERRY ADAMS tonight announced during his leader’s speech at the Sinn Fein Ard Fheis, that neither he nor Martin Ferris would be running for the Dáil in the next election.

In his address to the Ard Fheis, he said: “I’m very proud to have served as Uachtarán. Last year, myself and Martin said there was a plan for change. I thought I needed to tell you….I have been privileged to be part of an amazing leadership.

“One of our greatest achievements has been to build a peace process. I will not be standing for the Dáil neither will Martin Ferris…I want to thank Martin, Marie and their clann for years of service to the Republic. This is also my last Ard Fheis. I’ll be asking the new Ard Comhairle to agree a date in 2018 to elect our next Uachtarán.”

Martin Ferris was first elected to Dail back in 2002 in the Kerry North constituency and has retained his seat in Kerry for Sinn Fein in every general election since.
