Double dealing in Dublin…

THE pantomime descended into tragedy last week and this evening became a farce. After the Taoiseach’s meeting with Sinn Fein this morning, photographic evidence of IRA decommissioning was suddenly “unworkable”, and apparently off the table to Sinn Fein’s delight. However, after Paisley threatened to boycott future meetings with the Irish Government, Mr Ahern put the issue back on the table. Looks like we’ll have to wait until Ahern’s statement to the Dail on Wednesday to find out what his position actually is.

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.
