    There's an awful lot of sour grapes around SF these days. A bad vintage, it seems. A glut of careerists, prima donnas and opportunists. Makes you wonder how they become Senators and Councillors....

    The fact that similar issues have arisen in Wicklow, Limerick and Kildare make them plausible, however, looking externally.

    This one is all about the convention which he knew he wouldnt win as Mairead Farrell will attract a much higher vote and i will be surprised if she doesnt get in.

    I agree. I have never witnessed anything inappropriate in the various Dublin areas I've been involved in, though. I'd like to know a few more details of what exactly has gone on. Bullying would not be tolerated in my cumann but I'm starting to ask WTF.

Pity he has to flounce instead of accepting defeat.

    It's widespread across the country and they need to sort it out.
    I've been saying to everyone who'll listen for years now: Sinn Féin's problems are not with its past, but with its present.

    They need to do something about it ... urgently.

    Could it be there's a lack of will to sort out the abuses in the party?

    Yes quite , i am sure your inside knowledge of Sinn Fein is like your knowledge of most other things , non existent . Find something else to troll about , something you have a vague idea about .
