David Vance has a short blog piece on the growing numbers of Sinn Fein members it seems were present in the bar. We know of three names and seven party members who’ve been suspended. Despite speculation to the contrary, if that is all who were present at the melee in which Brendan Devine was attacked, then the party may have successfully completed its damage limitation. However, whilst the details of that night remain less than transparent, suspicions will linger.
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.
