No they aren't. As I was saying - fact and hyperbole. Two different things. Unless you're on P.ie.
You're playing with words - Sinn Fein is the political wing of the IRA or the IRA were the military wing of Sinn Fein. Same difference.

The hysterical anti SF crowd and the SF and PIRA supporters want to rehash all the same comments from the last 20 years. The facts are straight forward, it was one of the many killings by PIRA and it will not be forgotten, simple as. These threads are turning into a snooze fest.

It's also an interesting comment. During the last election several SF posters disputed the view that the average SF voter was an angry young man living in what is described as disadvantaged areas. Sinn Fein we were told is a very broad party who enjoys support from all ages and classes. Obviously not all party supporters agree with that claim.

No they are not.
PIRA are the armed military wing of the political party on the island of Ireland that calls itself "Sinn Fein"

But if you have evidence of your outrageous allegations about the third largest political party in Dáil Éireann, I suggest that you provide same to the Gardaí.
The fact remains that members of PIRA murdered an Irish garda sergeant in Adare.

The fact also remains that "Sinn Fein" who are the political controllers of the PIRA sit in Dail Eireann.

they don't have any middle class support worth mentioning

The murder of Irish gardai and soldiers is not something "Sinn Fein" ever show any remorse for.

Indeed. A broad church we're told. Or would be if everyone wasn't resolutely agnostic nowadays.

Nobody cares anymore.
It's been milked to death by political opportunists and by trolls on internet forums like this one.
People can only cry wolf so many times and then it's irrelevant.
Zoo.
You clearly don't understand the term, to cry wolf.

Oh some people care.

His family and friends for obvious reasons.

Randomers on the internet, for less obvious reasons.
A terrorist organisation murders a police officer whilst robbing a bank. Do you believe that this would not be seen as a very serious incident in another country? Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Limerick for Garda McCabe's funeral.

A plaque will be unveiled in his honour in his native Ballylongford, County Kerry on Sunday next. I will attend this event. It may be perfect time for his fellow Kerry man and convicted gun runner Martin Ferris and SF to issue an apology to the MCabe family for the repugnant campaign to free his killers and the complete disregard for the McCabe family.

Good post, the only change I could suggest it to the thread title. I would have used the term murder rather than killing.

Some poster named "Barna" (named after the robbery maybe) mentioned that nobody cares anymore, well I care and I know many people that care. I expect his wife, family and friends also care.
This is one of the (many) incidents that SF/IRA want to brush under the carpet, nothing to see here now, move along.
do you really think there is going to be another election in the near future the media must think so

Do you lot ever stop spinning, is your first reaction to every tragedy, murder or other atrocity to wonder "how will this effect our election strategy"?

Ye are a strange lot

SF have yet to let us know about who ordered the Adare post office raid.

Who was on the army council at that time.

SF is the mouth piece of the IRA army council.
