Just a thread to discuss the future of some of the young (well...younger than say 35) up and coming Sinn Féin Reps and activists.

People that stand out for me are;
Philip McGuigan
Pearse Doherty
Killian Forde

Daíthi Doolan
David Cullinane - lol what age is he roughly?

There is more but to tell you the truth I can't be bothered typing anymore so that'll do for now.

Any of the top three in my opinon are future party leader material, maybe after Conor Murphy who is in my opinon Sinn Féin's most able politican.

Murphy has one advantage in that he 'looks' like a leader. Forde is too far left for future SF ventures towards the centre. SF are going to evolve into a baby FF, and that will alienate your hard left membership such as Forde and DOD.
Shane, Sinn Fein is not now or never will be a baby FF, we may sometime in the future overtake your party in strength, but we have no need to mimic you's.

LOL, a bit of an insult to Killian to mention me in the same breath. In Cork South West, look out in years to come, for Paul Hayes- The housewife's choice! :D

Here is a picture of Paul. I didn't know how to post the pic, so follow the link. You can't miss him, he'll be the only one there that looks 27. Sound guy. Don't share a hotel room with him though, the snoring is chronic. :p [/url]

It's important symbolically that SF stand in every constituency at the next election.

As far as I am aware, he is not now and never was a member of Provisional Sinn Féin. Nor would I say he's particularly well thought of outside Provo circles. He's more into (allegedly) making money from his (alleged) smuggling activities.

A good man indeed.
I'm sure he is. I'm not blindly anti-RSF you know. At the end of the day, we have more in common with them than the likes of FF or FG.

:D :D

Conor Murphy ?! Your most able politician?!
Gadzooks

Cast your minds back to his woeful performance on Q&A a few months ago - where he was torn to shreds by John O' Donoghue.
(When your "most able politician" is made a fool of by anyone with O' Donoghue's shoddy debating skills, you must be in trouble)

He appeared again on Monday and was drab, long-winded and ineffectual

Thank god SF don't have any leadership crises on the horizon - they'd be in even more trouble than their chums in the UUP

I believe there was a thread on that very Q&A.

Btw Barry - I'm delighted Conor doesn't appeal to gobshítes like yourself beecauase if he did then we'd be doing something wrong.

I remember that Q&A and Conor put in the best preformance of all on the panel.
