Cathal O'Reilly the Ennis candidate for SF has resigned according to the Clare People (link above). (His name will remain on the ballot paper so he might still get elected). He resigned for posting derogatory comments about Travellers calling them "knackers". This was in 2011. SF has accepted his resignation. The Clare Champion is saying Cathal O'Reilly was told to quit by head office. The Clare People above makes no mention of this.

Funnily enough murder, bombings and staying silent on child sex abuse won't get you kicked out of SF but comments made 3 years ago on Facebook will. There is more than a whiff of right-on hypocrisy about the treatment of O'Reilly.

So can you confirm if SF defended the comments and held on to him, you would not have posted a similar Thread titled: SF candidate "will not resign" over Traveller postings on Facebook

The horror the horror of it all.


Lads unless Gerry Adams is caught drinking children's blood they are going to hoover up all the protest votes, calm down it'll sufficiently spook the regime that they'll spend the next two years breaking off piecemeal to biddie and Pat who'll be happy for any crumbs from the top table and they'll forget all about SF and vote FG/FF as we know they all shall.

So remember that and calm down.

No matter what they done he would have posted some sort of anti-SF rhetoric.

I think we all know that's true.

Well the Shinners were outraged by that, remember Mary Lou? Why are they not outraged now? :confused:
Dunno, you'll have to ask them.


That metally taste all you FG'ers have in your mouth, don't worry it'll pass after the polling stations close.

Clanrickard is a self-confessed fraudster who defrauded the banks and his workers for the benefit of his fathers small town hardware shop where he is allowed work the till.

For a few months he used the unit patch of the 29th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Italian) as an avatar. He's a degenerate.

Now you are concerned about the treatment of a SF candidate by his own party ? You were supposed to stop when you heard the scraping noise that was the bottom of the barrel.
