Garda Commissioner Drew Harris has said that An Garda Síochána agrees with a PSNI assessment that Sinn Féin and the IRA are overseen by a provisional army council.
Did people not realise this before the General Election?

Does this make another General Election more likely? Or less likely?

If there is another General Election, will this affect the outcome?

This is just a rehash of something the IMC said years ago.

Sinn Fein and the electorate really have the establishment rattled .

Why would the Irish People take the word of some one so connected to the British security services.

FFG produce their Modern day RIC / DMP / Black and Tan Man.

I don't think the people who voted SF actually care. Everyone knew/knows this.
The more they this is pointed out the more that Shinners scream "the establishment is agin' us".. and the more they play the victim card.
I've seen media outlets, political journalists, economic journalists, commentators etc.. all being rounded on for discussing facts.
Attack the source, not the content send to be the mo.. and it's for reasons like this that I say that SF is Ireland's Brexit.
Get change done, innit.

Indeed sir, always good for a laugh to see the no necks swallowing such crap without a single shred of evidence.

Buried within one article...

“We judge this strategy has a wholly political focus” and that the PAC and PIRA were committed to the peace process.


I guess a headline of 'PIRA remains wholly committed to peace process, confirms Garda Commissioner' wouldn't be of interest

While an Independent voter, I will probably give my 2nd preferences to SF if this shallow Red Scare continues in our Fake News media.

It is good they are totally committed to the Peace Process.

But that a Party ran for Office with a shadowy, unelected group pulling their strings is a different, and very worrying, matter.

Suppose, tomorrow, the Army Council decide supporting the Peace Process is no longer in their interests, and **** what the Irish people want? Wasn't that always the problem?

That is the problem.

What is the new regime?
Well, the new commissioner. The previous one targeted Irish Water protesters and trumped-up charges were brought against protesters. Fortunately a jury of peers couldn't be corrupted.

Now, if only the same could be said of certain members of the force which gave evidence at the trial

Pre the election 12 year old story about Paul Quinn suddenly appears
Then its all about 1 exclamation of "up the Ra' and the singing of a party song Ive heard in many surroundings.
Next up , after the election we have the daughter of a victim of IRA violence - some 34 years ago, given an open mic on a Claire Byrne programmes.
The we have Todays front page of the irish Times with both Stephen Collins and Conor Lally making links between Sf and the IRA (and I presume , in fact guarantee numerous similar articles in the Indo)

And then we have the Police commissioner throwing his lot in too

Full court press by the Establishment , who are righty about one thing ...some people are very afraid ...but its themselves terrified that 70 years of the corrupt duopoly is coming to an end.

All very obvious ...and all proving ineffective thankfully

As a 1st time SF voter can i say it only makes me more likely to vote for them

Where does it suggest that they are pulling strings?

I suggest that if PIRA came back, SF would again be toxic.

All through my childhood I remember the establishment asking them to discard bombs for the ballot box...20 years after doing so, that same establishment wants to exclude them from wider society.

Drew Harris says he agrees with this PSNI assessment. That assessment was given by Drew Harris!

The IRA disbanded many years ago. FFG are desperate.
FFG would have realised they were in big trouble if he had disagreed with himself !
