Sinn Fein would demand a border poll in any proposed coalition after the next election.

Mary Lou McDonald told her party's Ard Fheis last night that a vote on Irish unity needs to happen within five years.

The Sinn Féin leader said it's time to consider what the next decade will mean for a united Ireland.

Deputy McDonald told the conference that the Government needs to convene an all-Island forum to map a transition to a united Ireland.

She also told delegates that the people of Ireland had been "short-changed" by Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.

She said they needed a new deal to tackle the "crushing cost" of living and increase income.

The party is also pledging to reduce rents by up to €1,500 a year through tax relief and a three-year rent freeze.

Mary Lou McDonald said the crisis in housing and the health service would only be solved with Sinn Féin in government.
