Stories involving Martin McGuinness

McGuinness attacks Irish media

Martin McGuinness has launched a verbal attack on the media as part of the combative tone of his presidential campaign. The Sinn Fein member accused "west Brit" elements - a term republicans use to describe Irish people they accuse of having excessive sympathy towards Britain - of overlooking his record as "a peacemaker".


The Ulster Unionist party plans to vote against the transfer of policing and justice powers in tomorrow's assembly, as the deputy leader today said the Northern Ireland Secretary was guilty of "political and emotional blackmail."


The British government has been speaking to dissident republicans, according to Northern Ireland's deputy first minister Martin McGuinness. Northern Ireland secretary of state Owen Paterson recently denied claims the government wanted discussions with dissidents.


The Saville report into the Bloody Sunday shootings will be out in a fortnight, David Cameron told Martin McGuinness yesterday. Mr Cameron became the first Conservative prime minister to meet with Sinn Fein when he visited Northern Ireland.


The Saville inquiry has raised questions about the whereabouts of deputy first minister of Northern Ireland Martin McGuinness during the Bloody Sunday killings of 1972. The findings call his account "significantly inaccurate", though Lord Saville suggested it could be due to a failure of Mr McGuinness to recollect the events of the day.


The First Minister and Deputy First Minister in Northern Ireland are to launch a campaign encouraging the people of Northern Ireland to read to the recently agreed Hillsborough Castle Agreement.
