Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams says he will lead the party for as long as he is able.

He is currently the longest serving party leader - at the helm of Sinn Féin since 1983.

In the wake of Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny saying it was his intention to serve another full term as Taoiseach if re-elected, Mr Adams and his deputy Mary Lou McDonald were asked how long he intends to stay as Sinn Féin leader.
