Statement by Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Micheál Martin TD, on the resignation of Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon
I extend my best wishes to Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, following the announcement of her resignation.
Over many years, Nicola has demonstrated strong leadership rooted in her vision for Scotland.
Ireland and Scotland are close neighbours and friends, and I have greatly appreciated and valued my regular engagement with the First Minister, particularly at British-Irish Council summits.
I want to wish her all the best and look forward to engaging with her successor in due course.
