TD denies he’s a member of IRA Army Council

Big news of the weekend was Mary Harney’s attack on Sinn Fein, and notably she claimed that Kerry North Sinn Féin TD Mr Martin Ferris was a member of the IRA’s Army Council. A claim which Ferris denies. However it seems likely that without a legal response, it is now open for political rivals to make such explicit claims of Sinn Fein’s interconnection with the senior ranks of the IRA.
