Convicted child murderer campaigning for SF Euro candidate Matt Carthy

SINN Fein leader Gerry Adams has defended the involvement of Lord Louis Mountbatten's murderer in Sinn Fein's election campaign.

Thomas McMahon – the only person convicted for the horrific IRA attack in 1979 that also killed two children – has been canvassing for MEP hopeful Matt Carthy.

Despite being a convicted child killer, the party has described his contribution to the campaign as "valued".

McMahon served almost 20 years in prison for the callous bomb attack on Lord Mountbatten and his family while they were fishing off the Sligo coast.

The massive explosion claimed the life of Lord Mountbatten (79), his 14-year-old grandson Nicholas Knatchbull, and Paul Maxwell (15), who was working on the boat.

No commentary from you in your OP and it may be destined for the Zoo - thems the rules we are told.

You wouldn't be a Government supporter, by any chance?

Matt Cartys odds on PaddyPower have shortened since that story came out. He is now 1/20 to win a seat.

No Big deal that McMahon is canvassing for Carthy as far as I'm concerned. Next the media will be claiming that McMahon threatens to eat children while he's out canvassing on behalf of Carthy.

The Indo obsession with attempting to knobble Sinn Fein is pretty pathetic, it is similar to how the Sindo has hunted Labour for the last 18 months while giving FG a free pass.

Vested interests at work, nothing to see here.

Third thread on this topic this morning. The reak of desperation from the establishment media and its camp whore followers is a sight to behold.

I will never forget the haunted face of Paul Maxwell's mother on TG4 a few years ago about this killing. A strange man she did not know called to her house at Mullaghmore a few days before the outrage and " advised" her that her son was "too young" to be working on the boat, she did not get the message poor thing. The cowardly bástards went ahead and did the killing, old woman, children as well as Mountbatten murdered.
Maxwells father picked up the lifeless body of his young son after it was brought ashore and said it was like a rag doll.

It is quite valid to complain about a political party having the murderer of, amongst others, of a 15 year old boy, on it's campaign team.

Have he or SF ever apologised to the next of kin of those murdered?

Next they'll be telling us that SF actually stood up to the British, the bold bastards, how could they embarrass us like that?
