    Default Gilmore gets a memory jog about his past

    Eamon Gilmore's former comrade and fellow UCG student Padraig Mannion helps him remember exactly what party he joined.

    I'm sure Mr. Gilmore will thank him for his kindly reminder!

    You know, this really is a non story, which Gilmore should not hide, as that makes it a story.

    Joining a slightly "dodgy" or "radical" group in you youth almost 40 years ago... FFS,

    Irrelevant unless he denies / disputes it...

    I dont see the big deal. Aren't these all left wing parties in the end of the day? Dont we all know Eamons political persuasions? Does this "revalation" change anything?

    All rhetorical questions.

    It would be a non story if he had been honest about it. Saying he couldn't remember if it was the Officials or the Sinn Féin-The Workers Party just isn't believable.

    Michael Clifford's comparison with Bertie seems apt.

    Except for the fact that Official Sinn Fein were allied to the thoroughly evil "Official IRA" who according to the Sutton database of murders at the University of Ulster's CAIN project was responsible for 52 killings during the Troubles. Twenty-three of its victims were civilians, 17 were members of the British security forces, 11 were republican paramilitaries (including three of its own members), and one was a loyalist paramilitary.
