Mary Lou McDonald, who has been nominated as Sinn Fein's new leader, says a united Ireland is "not a pipe dream" and "is the road we're are on".
Thanking party members today, Deputy McDonald said: "I want to say at the very outset that I don't for a moment underestimate the scale of this undertaking - both on a personal level and indeed on a political level".

The change comes at a politically turbulent time, but according to many observers, it could also bring new opportunities for the party.
Party president Gerry Adams announced his intention to stand down in November after more than three decades at the helm. The 69-year-old is a key figure in the Irish republican movement, which seeks to take Northern Ireland out of the U.K. and unite it with the Republic of Ireland.
Before getting elected to the Dáil, she was an MEP representing the Dublin constituency - becoming Sinn Fein's first MEP in the Republic of Ireland in 2004.
Adams played a major role in convincing the IRA to disarm as part of the Northern Ireland peace process and masterminded Sinn Fein's rise to become the second-biggest political force north of the border and the third in the south.
