Here’s an interesting snippet that nearly passed us by (thanks Alan). Fianna Fail has cleared the way for individuals living in Northern Ireland to join the party. There’s still no right to form Cummain or constituency parties, but none the less it’s a potentially significant move towards a more formal presence north of the border, either alone or in some relationship with the SDLP.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
