Sisters hear Adams speak in Dublin

Richard Delevan writes his dispatches as a participant in what he thinks may be a stunning coup de theatre by the Sinn Fein president as the McCartney sisters defy earlier press speculation and turn up in front row seats for his address to 2000 of the party faithful! They received a standing ovation from the floor.

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.
