Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD has extended her warmest regards and best wishes to Nicola Sturgeon as she steps down as the First Minister of Scotland.

Teachta McDonald said, "I was sorry to learn this morning of the decision of Nicola Sturgeon to resign as First Minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National Party.

"She has been an incredible advocate for the independence of her country, and I know that she will remain so as she steps down from office.

"She has taken a strong stance against Brexit and its impact on Scotland, as well as the undermining of devolved institutions by the Tories in London.

"She leaves a strong legacy, and I want to take this opportunity to offer my very warmest regards and best wishes to Nicola and her husband Peter for the future."

Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O'Neill said, "It’s with deep regret to see Nicola Sturgeon’s resignation.

"Nicola is a formidable leader who very ably represented the best of Scotland as First Minister.

"She made huge strides in advancing Scottish independence & standing up for Scottish interests. Her leadership will be missed."
