Banner Sparks Controversy On St. Patrick's Day

CNN recently reported, "Mary Lou McDonald, the leader of Irish republican party Sinn Fein, has sparked controversy after appearing at a St.

Patrick's Day parade in the United States with a banner reading "England get out of Ireland." Ireland's foreign minister Simon Coveney tweeted in response, "This is NOT leadership -- it's offensive, divisive and an embarrassment -- grow up, this is NOT #ireland in 2019!

We are better than this!"
