Bertie doesn't know make-up of IRA Council

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern said in Meath today that he doesn’t know the make-up of the IRA army council, directly contradicting his Justice Minister Michael McDowell and Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern who both have claimed that Martin McGuinness, Gerry Adams and Martin Ferris are members. Your guess as to why he said this is as good as mine.

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.
