Sinn Fein to run for Irish presidency, says Gerry Adams
Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has indicated his party will put forward a candidate for the Irish presidency for the first time.
Speaking at his party's annual conference in Belfast, Mr Adams said the office should not be a "trophy" for the political establishment.
Voters go to the polls next month to choose a successor to two-term president Mary McAleese.
