    Senator Trevor O'Clochartaigh leaves SF

    Because of internal issues within the Galway West-South Mayo constituency organisation. He begins by stating the selection convention was "pre-ordained", that "continuous disciplinary problems" ween't dealt with, and that the branch has breached its code of ethics. He said he hoped the leadership would think hard about his resignation, and implement reforms to deal with the "poisonous atmosphere" within the party, as members are trying to do the right thing, but are impeded by completely unsuitable misbehaviour.

    full statement you can see its about the selection convention, he thought he wasn't going to get picked and wants to run for Dail

    Rubbish. Trevor was facing a contested convention and because it looked like he would lose jumped ship. No other reason. Before anyone asks I am in that area and know the facts. A decent guy but his failure to take a seat in 2016 meant he really did not deserve another crack at the whip when their are more talented candidates available. Pity he has to flounce instead of accepting defeat.

    That's a loss. Trevor has been at various times in the Labour Party (and, I think, in the Greens) - so there's an easy line of attack for cheap put downs. ("What party are you in this week, Trevor?") But SF supporters would be wise not to do that. His allegations have to be taken seriously.

    Actually no, in this case they dont. Purely a case of sour grapes.

    Sinn Féin has a problem with indiscipline and bullying.

    It's widespread across the country and they need to sort it out.

    That's the standard SF response to these allegations every time.

    Stunned. He's been with the party a very long time.

    He's prolife?
