    What has she done ? Is it pay back for letting the government use her for publicity against SF.

    They did not fill the vacancy when I left.

    Perhaps Sinn Fein should nominate a member of Larry White's family.

    Remember after the Dáil debate on the Mairia Cahill issue RTÉ's David Davin Power said on the Six One, politicians were coming upto him all day saying they hoped this controversy put the brakes on Sinn Féins upward support. I'm sure Mairia will have lots of support.

    I hope SF and FF will support her. Her election to the Seanad with Lab and FG support is assured and SF and FF could send the clear message that victims of sexual abuse and violence should be supported.
