Leo Varadkar and Theresa May To Meet In Belfast

Around 2,000 delegates are expected to gather at the conference for the ratification of Mrs McDonald as the next party president.

'There is the basis of an agreement and it should be possible to see an executive up and running in Northern Ireland very soon'.

She said her leadership would mark a defining chapter in the achievement of a United Ireland.

"The SDLP leader should be less concerned about Theresa May's feelings and more concerned about getting an agreement that enables genuine power-sharing based on rights, respect and equality for all", he concluded.

Mr Adams announced in November that he was stepping down after more than three decades.

Northern Ireland has been without a functioning government since January 2017 and several rounds of talks to resolve the crisis have failed.

Downing Street has not said that a long-awaited deal between the DUP and Sinn Féin has been agreed but observers believe Mrs May would not visit the north unless confident of a successful conclusion to the latest round of talks.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is set to meet his British counterpart Theresa May, amid speculation a deal to break the deadlock over Northern Ireland's power-sharing assembly is at hand.

Under a power sharing agreement that restored peace to the once-troubled area, both have to agree to work together before normal devolved governance can be restored.

"However they want to describe it the DUP know that agreement requires an Acht Gaeilge".

Ireland's Taoiseach (Prime Minister), Leo Varadkar, speaks outside Stormont House, in Belfast, Northern Ireland February 12, 2018.

In a sign of the growing momentum towards a deal, the Taoiseach cancelled a scheduled meeting with Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones in Dublin to travel to Belfast.

There won't be a free-standing Irish Language Act, we've always made that very clear.

Sinn Fein demands for Irish-language protections emerged as the main sticking point.

He said it is not enough to simply form a new executive.

But while such hopes proved unfounded, all parties said an accord was in sight.

He said any deal must signal an end to the "joint DUP/Sinn Féin status quo".
