Txt: “Do all in your power to stop it!”

The Sunday Times seems to have had a sizeable chunk of their editorial team on the streets of Dublin yesterday. So far no one admits to organising the riot. Mass text messages summoned between 150 and 200 to O’Connell Street. It seems to have been planned in such a way that few of the ‘usual suspects’ would have been in evidence to the local Guards until the march was due to start. Intriguingly it quotes a Sinn Fein councillor saying that they had all been told beforehand to have their alibis ready. But despite some fevered rumours there is no evidence that anyone from Sinn Fein was involved in yesterday’s actions.
