The Irish News carries an interview with Caomhghin O Caolain , âCompliant media colluding in bid to crush SF successâ. On page 17 it also covers a picket by 50 SF supporters outside a meeting on policing in Newry last night – and to quote – Davy Hyland said people wanted to show their anger at “attempts to blacken the name of Sinn Fein and the republican movement.”
Speaking before last nightâs developments, Mr O Caolain said he was âgalledâ by the mediaâs continued focus on whether IRA members were involved in law-breaking on both sides of the border.
âIt galls me because none of the issues [to which the media refers] is under my or my partyâs control,â he said.
Excellent timing Caomhghin and Davy!
