Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghin Ó Caoláin has challenged the Fine Gael party to state whether it still favours Irish reunification following what he described as the "opportunist and partitionist" comments of Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny
Deputy Ó Caoláin said: "Railing against any plan to allow for limited Northern representation in the Dáil has exposed the Fine Gael leadership's position as partitionist in the extreme and mirrors the comments of the most reactionary of DUP
members. Are all Fine Gael members happy to endorse such a position?
"It should be noted that Fine Gael voted for a Government motion in May
2003 which sought to 'take forward' the report of the All-Party Oireachtas
Committee on the Constitution which had recommended allowing for Northern
representation in the Oireachtas. This needs to be seen as an integral part
of the peace process and Sinn Féin will be pressing the issue in the months
ahead. Fine Gael should reflect on its position and endorse the common
sense of All-Ireland politics."
I remember seeing Enda Kenny's daughter wearing a T-shirt of Michael Collins. Along side the picture it said
"You read the book
You saw the film
Now Join the party!!"
Oh, how the mighty have fallen!
It's time we all knew, are you lot for a United Ireland or not?
