The president of Sinn Féin (Uachtarán Shinn Féin), Mary Lou McDonald. Her party, whose Irish name means “Ourselves Alone,” has from time to time been proscribed as a terrorist movement. Through its Irish Republican Army (IRA) military wing, it led the armed resistance against the British Army and Protestant militias in Northern Ireland, until that war ended in peace and power sharing via the Good Friday Agreement. Sinn Fein operates as a political party on both sides of the border and recently was the biggest vote getter in elections for Ireland’s parliament, the Daíl. Wikimedia photo.
