I see that media starved John Laird has claimed that the cross border body, Waterways Ireland, is now being run by the Knights of St Columbanus. In a further twist he indicated that this Stoop Catholic lay organisation may have the backing of the Ultra Conservative Catholic organisation Opus Dei.
Now I have no time for either Catholic grouping, Opus Dei represents all that is wrong with the Catholic church and the Knights of St Columbanus are nothing more than an Irish Catholic version of the Free massons. They have very close links to both the Stoops in the North and Fianna Fáil in the South.
However to suggest that either of these groupings are in control of Waterways Ireland shows just how 'off his meds' Laird has become.
Nothing more than a media whore who has too much time on this hands
