Senior Sinn Féin figure and MI5 agent Denis Donaldson was murdered at a remote cottage near Glenties, Co Donegal in April 2006. The Real IRA subsquently said they killed Donaldson who was blasted to death with a shotgun. To date no-one has been arrested in relation to the crime.

Donaldson's family are seeking an inquest into his death. For the fifth time their application has been adjourned with Gardaí claiming that progress is being made in the murder investigation, a claim the family's solicitor rejects.

UTV News - Sinn Féin 'spy' inquest delayed again

Justce delayed is justice denied. Four years after Donaldson's death his family deserve an inquest. Continual delays leave the impression that there's something to hide.

I dont think its an "impression",there is no doubt there are those on both sides of the equation who wanted Donaldsons knowledge hidden.State security takes precedent over the life of one individual,always has done despite the citizens rights.

Look, get this straight.

The RIRA are an MI5 creation. The are an infiltrated organisation from the get go. MI5 organise a few kills under the name of RIRA to gain street cred.

Only one group would have most motive to kill Denis Donaldson and that is MI5 / British Intelligence. Imagine all the interviews to the media where Donaldson would have been asked about all the people he met while being a top man in Sinn Fein and supping with the devils of the Crown forces at the same time. Think of all the people he could name. Once his cover was blown both Sinn Fein and MI5 would want him dead.

The Gardai down here are but little lap dogs told what to investigate and what not to investigate. Would people ever get real.

Donaldson is dead and there will never be any serious effort from both sides of the border to find out who killed him. Because both sides already know who killed him.

Something odd, odd, odd about Donaldson's death. He must have known he'd have a "visitor".
Especially after the Sunday World published his whereabouts. Interestingly it was a former RUC Special Branch officer who led the SW there.

The family of murdered IRA spy Denis Donaldson have launched legal proceedings against the State over ongoing delays in holding an inquest. The development emerged after another adjournment in the long-stalled coroner's probe into the shooting of the MI5 agent by dissident republicans 10 years ago. Relatives of Mr Donaldson walked out of Donegal Coroners' Court in protest at the latest hold-up.....

Surely he had to be taken into protective custody for his own safety .

The Brits or the Irish authorities don't exactly 'Look after" their touts . You feel sorry for those that sell out their own people for these sorts of "Authorities".

According to the British narrative, Russian agents killed their mole Litvinenko.

So why would it be out of the ordinary for MI-5 to assassinate their mole Denis Donaldson?

No Irish politician is in any position to criticize the Russians while Mr Donaldson's death is not investigated.

He was given assurances by the Sinn Fein leadership that he would be safe.
The safehouse belonged to a leading SF national figure.
They assumed that they spoke for, or represented Republicanism as a whole.

That would take MI5, the SF leadership and the RIRA working in unison and colluding.
Are you aware of the vitriolic hatred between all three?

Aw come on. As soon as the PIRA went off the scene MI-5 invented the RIRA. How else would you infiltrate dissidents unless you controlled the operation from the get go. When the RIRA claimed responsibility for DD's death it just meant MI-5 or an MI-5 controlled asset did the shooting. All with the collusion of the Garda Special Branch.

That's why there'll be NO investigation. Some people have to be sacrificed see. For the greater good.

But it would take a degree of co-operation between the SF leadership and the Derry-Donegal RIRA to achieve the end result.
Thats where your theory falls flat.
The safe house was owned and provided by a top SF figure.
Can you expalin why MI5 would create the RIRA and then jail all its leadership and hundreds of its members?

How could anyone give him these kind of guarantees .

Denis Donaldson's metal health condition should have been questioned and acted upon if he genuinely thought that he would be safe where he was.

Did his 'Handlers" not have a duty of care to protect their "employee".

In the "Real World " there is no way that Denis Donaldson was going to be allowed to live his life out safely in this situation.

Did his "Unmasking" destroy his mental health and should he have been left in such a vulnerable sate ; "Physically and Mentally"
