Perfect Timing.

The Irish News carries an interview with Caomhghin O Caolain , ‘Compliant media colluding in bid to crush SF success’. 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 night’s developments, Mr O Caolain said he was “galled” by the media’s continued focus on whether IRA members were involved in law-breaking on both sides of the border.

“It galls me because none of the issues [to which the media refers] is under my or my party’s control,” he said.

Excellent timing Caomhghin and Davy!
