Controversy lingers despite good performance

Paul O’Brien in the Examiner does not believe that Sinn Fein’s president Gerry Adams quite managed to shake off the ghost at the feast: “It [the sppech] was meant to be one of triumph, of a party celebrating its centennial, as sure of its destiny as it was of its past.

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.
