Mary Lou McDonald: The two-party system is now "officially broken"

Sinn Fein president Mary Lou McDonald says the two party system is now "officially broken" as she chaired a meeting of the party's national executive committee and continued to bask in a remarkable General Election result.

The party failed to run enough candidates to capitalise on its surging popularity in Ireland, so it will not finish up with the most seats.
