Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams has called for a coalition of the left that could effectively mean a Government without Fine Gael or Fianna Fáil.

In his keynote speech to the party's Ard Fheis in Wexford tonight, Gerry Adams also called for the rejection of homophobia, and offered to meet with the Orange Order.

While scathing of Labour in the speech, Gerry Adams also sees them as future coalition partners.

"If we are serious about changing this country, the left needs to come together around viable alternative policies and take on the conservative establishment, who brought the economy to its knees and created the toxic culture that we are trying to break free from," he said.
