Seven members of Sinn Fein in Naas have left the party over claims of bullying intimidation and a toxic and hostile environment.

Naas-based councillor Sorcha O'Neill was one of those who resigned from the party today.

Sinn Fein has issued a further statement this afternoon:

"We regret that Cllr Sorcha O’Neill has decided to leave the party. She was a dedicated and capable member of our team and on the council.

"We think that Sorcha should reflect on her position. This has come as a surprise to us. If there are issues in the constituency we will look at them, but Sorcha is a valued member of Sinn Féin and we would hope she will reconsider her position.

"We acknowledge that there are difficulties present in the area which we are working to address. 

"We wish Sorcha all the best in the future."
