“There is too much hypocrisy..”

A common thread in the coverage of the meeting last night in Crossmaglen of the Quinn Support Group, attended by MLAs, TDs and local councillors, is the focus on those querying a political motivation behind the campaign.. rather than focussing on the campaign’s stated aims of bringing the killers of Paul Quinn to justice – notably in the RTÉ report [RealPlayer audio file] and this BBC report [video(ish) file] in which the brother of Conor Murphy, the Northern Ireland Executive’s Regional Development minister, Declan Murphy features leading the questioning. Meanwhile the Irish government’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dermot Ahern, is to meet with Paul Quinn’s parents. But will he confirm that, as the DUP’s Jeffrey Donaldson relayed, the police assessment is that “IRA members [were] involved”? Or can he see anything..
