    Default 'Election 18' - RTE1

    RTE will broadcast an election special on the momentous 1918 election in Ireland which the people declared for a Republic. Looking forward to it.

    I remember being surprised many years ago when reading that Rathmines elected a unionist candidate.

    1918 Sinn Fein TDs.

    "Sinn Fein" then and now are not the same party.

    It's a complete misrepresentation of history to refer to them as one and the same.

    These are two different parties.. you speak as if they are one continuous interlinked entity . They are not.

    Both Fianna Fail and Fine Gael have stronger links to the Sinn Fein of 1918

    will it be like the 1916 commemorations ...where history was perverted, distorted and rewritten to suit FGs modern day narrative and to try and make the IPP and Redmond relevant at Endas behest ?

    Probably
    Is there any Incompetence Scandal or Corruption that would actually make the Irish electorate wake up ....It seems not, so screw em

    Probably
    Will BBC on the Dodder (RTE) be very upset at the rejection of the British Empire?
