Looks like Sinn Fein’s come up with a novel way of plugging the various funding gaps that have opened up in the wake of the Northern Bank robbery. They’re selling off (part of) the spying device they found at their headquarters on the Falls Road a while back. Interest has been brisk. It’s been on sale for only a short time and they’ve received 37 bids. Although at US $760.00 the reserve has not yet been met!
Update: The Broom beat us to it, and has a lovely big photograph that shows off the para-carpentry involved in placing it.
