Tóibín set to rejoin Sinn Féin

Deputy Peadar Tóibín is expected to rejoin the Sinn Féin party later this week, six months after his suspension from the party following his vote against the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill.
He confirmed this week that he would be rejoining the party at the end of the week.
“I am looking forward to rejoining the party. For the past six months, I would have loved to have been working for the party, and I am delighted that I can now rejoining.”
“I have done my best over the past six months to represent my constituents,” he said.
Deputy Tóibín voted against the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill last June, defying the party whip and was suspended from the Sinn Fein party.
He said at the time, he would not consider joining any other party.
