Michelle O'Neill Goes Viral!

Last week, Sinn Fein vice president Michelle O'Neill made history by becoming the joint head of the Northern Ireland power-sharing executive alongside the Deputy First Minister Emma Little-Pengelly.

The stage was set as the cameras assembled in Stormont castle to capture the historic moment. It was the only show in town as supporters cheered Sinn Fein Vice President Michelle O'Neill into the chamber.

This is the first time a nationalist or republican has held the position of head of government, and the appointment gained worldwide attention as Michelle's image and name flashed across screens and stole headlines everywhere.

Michelle O'Neill, a teenage mum at just 16, was surrounded by the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland with her dad, an IRA prisoner and another family relation killed by the SAS.

The popular figure described herself as a unifier who will fight for Catholics and Protestants alike. During her acceptance speech, she called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza along with dialogue and peace.

"I'm somebody who wants to be a unifier. I'm somebody who wants to bring people together".
