New vistas opening for Sinn Fein?

Morning Ireland had an excellent snippet on this morning with a detail examination of the party’s election prospects in the wake of the IRA’s suspension of it’s military campaign from Fionnan Sheehan of the Irish Examiner, and Cian McCormick talks to three TDs on how their parties might consider the possibility of Sinn Fein as a prospective coalition partner in future. Most are cagey, but given the IRA acquits itself well over time ahead there were no objections in priniciple. It was also the subject of a leader in today’s Guardian.

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.
