SF stoop to even lower depths

category national | miscellaneous | news report author Sunday September 09, 2012 22:34author by Teresa Report this post to the editors

The condemnation by Cllr Mac Donncha of the friends and family of Mr Alan Ryan, buried on Saturday 8th September following his brutal murder on the streets of Dublin on Monday 3rd September shows how low this former "republican party" have gone.

I am no supporter of the so-called "Reals" but it is morally disgraceful that SF attacked a community in mourniing.

How low can they continue to go?

SF no longer fit to call themselves "republican".

I write with regard to the statement issued by Sinn Fein on Sunday 9th September 2012 in reference to the funeral of Irish Republican, Alan Ryan, shot on the streets of Dublin on Monday 3rd September. In a strongly worded and bitter statement Sinn Fein Councillor Michael Mac Donncha attacked the group to which Mr Ryan was associated. One does not have to agree with the politics of the "Real" IRA to see that a vitiolic condemnation is totally unwarranted. To come out and attack a group of people and by extension Mr Ryan's family a day after they buried their son and comrade is dispicable. It is a total disgrace that a so-called and self described "republican party" would climb onto the establishment band wagon and launch a vicious verbal assault on members of a community who are in grief.

In Sinn Fein's race to distance themselves so completely from "armed insurgents" and to place themselves firmly in the political middle ground Sinn Fein will stop at nothing. I am very saddened by Sinn Fein's stance on this. They had no need to say anything, the moral position would have been to remain silent and allow Mr Ryan's friends and family to mourn. This once very progressive party have stooped to a very low depth. Shame on them. shame on them.
