Looking at the way Hollyweird supposedly "Moral" lecturimg of the world, on what people should do and the dam breaking where for decades Sexual assaults, harassment and other things have been covered up was the start of draining a swamp.

This has quickly found its way into US Media where sexual predators have been outed but there is more than that.
Nobody is shocked at Washington as that has always been the case and Lewinski wasn't the first Intern abused.

UK is now feeling the backlash as its politicians are being found out and its on all sides where Rape covered up and people warned what would happen were they to report it.

As of yet everything is quiet in Ireland.............. for how long.

Anybody who has been involved in Politics will know the stories kept quiet..................
Politicians who are gay was something everybody ignored because it was nobodys business and every party was aware of its members. Some are still refraining from disclosure but that is their business.

Politicians engaging in affairs including one TD having a Dublin wife and a Constituency wife...... again hidden, there are many many others who conducted affairs.

Politicians conducting affairs between each other and not necessarily same party.

Radio Dublins Eamon Cooke was known about withing media and they looked away.

All of above is between "consenting adults" but what has yet not come out is ANY of the sexual harassment and propositioning that has been going on for decades of both female and males by more senior people both within Politics and Media.
The used of paid escorts both male and female is also well known with the Johns known by the media as well.

Question is whom will be the first to make the break to the media before the floodgates open either from within the media or politics.

I posted years ago regarding a sexual abuse ring within upper reaches of Irish society, surprises me not if it still existed or has expanded.

Let's not import the UK/US witchhunt. There has to be due process. Otherwise people will make up stories because a man rejected them, or because they are an obsessed fan. A woman was arrested a few weeks ago trying to climb over the wall at Buckingham Palace. The UK has a serious mental health problem because of "Care in the Community", and some develop obsessions with celebrities and make false allegations. The police recently apologised to the family of the late Leon Brittan who was hounded to the grave by the Fake News.

I don't actually believe there is much sexual harrassment in Leinster House. There was a controversy over a certain FG TD putting a female party college on his lap but he apologised and it seems to have been accepted.

Close to 30 years ago the story was out that Leon Brittan was a violent Peado..................... this was got from die hard Tory voters who involved at top of a Constituency.
I only knew them for a few year maximum but all the stuff they ever told me of the Torys was proven correct.

The allegations against Brittan were not proven correct. They were disproven but by then he was dead. There was a Tory MP in the 1980s who was constantly accusing people of running paedophile rings to get votes.

We all watched a FG TD get sexuality harassed by a pished colleague during a Dail debate on abortion a while back and no one batted an eyelid.

40% of women are sexually assaulted. It’s very very common.
The government won’t fund another SAVI report.

Famous interview with one of Thatchers whips where he admitted to the existence of a blackmail book making reference to mp's and small boys.

The massive comeuppance to Hollywood is the only good to come out of this sordid affair.

As regards what's going to happen here, I was expecting that more stories would begin to emerge in the last week but so far it's all very muted. Is it possible that a sort of conservative Irish morality kept the guys in line?

The OP's reference to extramarital affairs is clouding this huge issue. There's a MASSIVE difference between consensual and non-consensual behaviour.

can't really see how making a crass joke is 'sexual harrasment' - this is just pure snowflake melodrama, and in the UK it's either directed at Leavers or Corbynites , or Tories - all spread by the virtue signalling hypocrites that fester in the UK Labour party

Police told to stop looking.

Story existed way longer than I would have known about and fact it was an open secret in Tory party tells you something.

Or maybe it was a malicious rumour to damage rivals in the party?

As I pointed out but knowledge of people's personal indiscretions has always been known about.

CJH was known for decades, so was Bertie with Celia, Garrets with a lady friend and quite a few more that never become
public including the FG minister taking a young lady to a room in a Dublin hotel people with FFers after a meeting late one evening.
Nobody recognised him, though one of two did know the girl and she was daughter of a prominent person of the legal fraternity.

Of the people concerned nope, they were die hard constituency party members, no axe to grind.
Just didn't like scummy people and there were others who they spilled on.

I really hope this nonsense doesn't take hold here. Absolutely, if someone is found guilty in court then they should be punished, but I'm really bloody tired of this now. The other day there was a story in one of the British tabloids of a political journalist who claimed she was basically in an awful state after a politician who is an old family friend ALMOST touched her knee, in other words the man did nothing inappropriate whatsoever.

My impression of the Irish media is that in the past, they have turned a blind eye to extra-marital affairs. I think that that is as it should be. My fear is that more recently, driven by increasingly sensationalist trends in the international media, that that may be changing.

Yea, I can understand why people like you wouldn't want the sexual deviants in FFG exposed ok.
FFG, the party who covered up the rape and murder of children by the RCC in order to protect their vote.
Poor Mary Boyle.....
Sick.

Unlike the UK, most Irish people don't mind if a politician has an adult mistress. Parnell was long ago.
