    Ferris does not condemn Dissidents.

    Kerry North- West Limerick Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris has refused to condemn the Dissidents who fired a volley of shots at the funeral of Dissident Republican Alan Ryan at the weekend. Surely there is something wrong when an elected representative cannot condemn criminals firing shots in a public place. Ferris also says that his time is better "Spent working on advancing the peace process than condemning groups with no mandate or support".

    Its funny that Ferris mentions a mandate, its not that long ago that Ferris and his comrades supported a "war" that had no mandate. Its a bit rich for Ferris now to use a lack of mandate to ignore Dissidents when he and Sinn Fein supported groups that were carrying out similar actions to the Dissidents 20 years ago.

    The extract below is taken from the Radio Kerry website.



    Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris refuses to condemn actions of dissident republicans at the funeral of Real IRA boss

    Kerry North West Limerick Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris has refused to condemn the actions of dissident republicans at the funeral of Real IRA boss Alan Ryan on Saturday. Gardai believe they know the identity of most of those who took part in the display outside Alan Ryan's home in Donaghmede on Dublin's Northside. Gardai also believe that he was shot dead by an organised crime gang.
    Deputy Ferris says the practice of firing a volley of shots over the coffin is outdated and there is no need for militant republicanism because of the peace process. He believes his time is better spent advancing the peace process than condemning the actions of groups that have no mandate and no support.
    Meanwhile,Fine Gael Listowel Town Councillor and former Garda sergeant, Tim O'Leary says Deputy Ferris should condemn the incident, which he described as highly provocative.

    Deputy Ferris is an a la carte democrat. Altho elected to a democratic parliament he supports those who murder a Garda, and refuses to condemn those purporting to be a private army

    You do realise that the RIRA most likely hate Ferris & co as much as they hate Peter Robinson and hils ilk.

    How is the opinion of Ferris relevant in all of this? I am a bit more interested in Alan Shatter's take on all this.
