It's not only FG, FF has had a couple as well.
    The same could be said of SF who on both in the ROI and NI have convicted IRA terorists in their ranks, would u not say if they were not IRA people that the people would not vote for them

    Some of your terminology was what you would expect from a unionist or Tory or a FG Taoiseach.

    Many of the ‘Convicted terrorist’ were convicted in the Diplock Courts which were set up as an alternative to the failed internment without trial system to give the impression that proper justice existed. While many who deserved to be convicted got their punishment how many others got unwarranted convictions and some never got punished. What we now call the Provos came as a direct response to attacks on nationalists and on their homes. How many joined this new group in order to defend themselves and their community without ever having any long term political aims. Many people got categorized as terrorists for simply opposing the system. Some of most brutal acts of violence were committed by many during the the conflict, acts that some of the perpetrators of these crimes still sadly feel they can be justified.
    I feel many down south don’t understand what happened up north and some of the comments by politicians in the Dail often confirm that impression.
    During my above rambling I got thinking of Brexit and the DUP insistence that NI cannot be treated differently from Britain. For half a century NI was the place discrimination thrived, be it voting , housing, jobs etc, practices that would never be allowed in Britain. Did the Unionists complain about the differences.

    Exactly, and the gas thing is, with statements like these unionists don't see how they are handing SF a chance to point out such and remind the younger fenians what things were like as their parents tell them and would be like again if the unionism got half a chance . Continue poking the nationalist bear Arlene !


    And as for convicted 'terrorists', Irish history had plenty of them as the FG/FF/LPers like to pretend didn't happen !!
