Kennedy to brief Dail politicians on beatings

After a quiet first week, the Kennedy campaign in Gerry Adams’ West Belfast constituency seems to be limbering up. On Wednesday, he’s going to the Oireachtas to meet with party leaders in the Republic, and, Slugger understands, will present them with a dossier of punishment beatings and shootings. He’ll be accompanied by Michael Gallagher of the Omagh victims group.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
