Gerry Adams says his position as leader of Sinn Féin is up for debate.

The party is holding an event in Dublin this afternoon to discuss its future.

The meeting in Ballyfermot is the first of 46 to be held around the country.

It is being attended by representatives from the 32 counties.

The February general election campaign saw many calls for Mr Adams to step down as leader.

But he says despite changes within the organisation, he is planning to stay put for now.

And speaking to reporters, Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness says Mr Adams enjoys full party support.
