Brian Stack was shot in the neck by the IRA. martin ferris swears he was not in anyway involved, has nothing to hide but funny enough he calls it "the death" of brian stack. Why is ferris deflecting if he is innocent? Why did ferris make threats he has embarrassing information on other parties?

Then there's dessie ellis who boasted he was in prison at the time. Now we all know IRA could never hurt a fly behind bars.. yeah once an IRA member is behind bars they are 100% harmless. They could never hurt anyone and or order someone to be hurt

did brian stacks son state that his father had evidence that would rock this state to its foundation.

An SF seat is no certainty in Kerry - they only won 12% the last time, with Ferris' vote staying almost identical to what he had in the old Kerry Nth (when it amounted to 20% or so there). Trying to establish a dynasty is of course very much in the style of Kerry politics (Healy Rae, Spring, Griffin etc) but it may not necessarily pull it off for SF.
I'd like nothing more than to see SF vanish in kerry

Toireasa Ferris is also remembered for a frank and forensic description of what SF was doing wrong after the 'disappointing' General Election of 2007, when SF were tipped to make gains but actually ended up going from 5 to 4 seats. It might please you to focus on a bad interview, but her article was one of the contributions that turned SF around. No airhead, she. https://cedarlounge.wordpress.com/2...s-nothing-to-the-bulk-of-people-in-the-south/
It is a terrible pity that she was not frank and forensic about the slaughter of Garda Jerry McCabe and the role of her father in celebrating the release of his killers.

why can't Ferris just tell the truth ?

there would be honor in that
To this day SF/IRA are the loudest voices calling for a Truth Commissions ( South Africa style). Yet they are the most closed deceitful revisionist gang that exists on the Island. Expecting gun runner Ferris to speak honestly on tomorrow's weather would be like pulling teeth. Don't even go there.

Ferris is the greatest TD to represent Kerry in many a year. His retirement will be a big loss to the body politic.

I'm sure he will be even busier with other activities, maybe some sailing or some other seafaring activity.

I don't agree with nepotism in Irish politics, usually the runt of the litter ends up inheriting the seat and then those useless wasters end up propping up the Dail bar till retirement.

It should be made illegal for a family member of a deceased or retired TD to run for election for the first two years after the death or retirement. That would cure it in no time.
Would be unconstitutional surely?

Well, he did organise a protest outside a branch of BOI a few months back, after they removed the Irish language option from their ATMs. Heady days.
