Here’s another little thread of interest from Gerard Cunningham… It seems that there is no record of any Sinn Fein TD having made a donation to their party, or a least that bit of it that organises within the Republic:
I telephoned SIPO (Standards in Public Office Commission) asking them about donations by Sinn Féin TDs and senators. SIPO have replied to me, saying they have “no record of receiving a section 24(1A) donation statement from any elected member of Sinn Féin.”
They add that they’d “be happy to examine any information that would support a claim that a section 24(1A) donation statement should have been furnished to it by anyone.”
Gerard has put a request for further information into Sinn Fein party HQ and is awaiting some answers. He’s been chipping away at this story for a while now… It may be some time before he gets an answer…
