    Default Republicanism In Crisis

    Republicanism is in crisis, if it wasn't bad enough that only 25% of OWC citizens view themselves as solely Irish, now we have the specter of a split in SF ranks. As we all know Mr McGuinness had famously branded dissidents as traitors to Ireland and in return received death threats...Dissident plot to kill Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness - Local & National, News - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk now it turns out a SF MLA is showing his support for these same 'dissidents'

    A MAN facing a trial over an alleged dissident republican firing range near Greencastle has been granted compassionate bail to attend the Christening of his baby daughter this weekend after a Sinn Féin MLA agreed to take him to and from Maghaberry Prison.

    During a hearing at Omagh Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, Aidan Coney (34) of Malabhuí Road in Carrickmore was granted 25 minutes plus two hours travelling time to attend the religious ceremony in St Columcille’s Church in the town this Saturday afternoon.

    However among the stringent conditions placed on Coney’s attendance at the ceremony in Carrickmore provides that West Tyrone MLA Barry McElduff remains by his side throughout the 145 minutes permitted leave from the prison.

    The four are alleged to be among a number of unaffiliated dissident republicans based in the Tyrone and Mid Ulster styling themselves as ‘the IRA’. All are charged with taking part in weapons training at an improvised firing range in Formil Wood on the Gorticashel Road close to Creggan and Greencastle on March 30 2012 and possessing a .22 Walther rifle and ammunition with intent to endanger life and the preparation of terrorist acts.

    Rafferty and Kelly are also charged with directing the activities of a terrorist organisation, namely ‘the IRA’. Kelly faces a further charge of collecting information likely to be of use to terrorists.
    So is Barry acting alone in this? is this the start of the macdufflecoat liberation army? Or is it the usual case of SF saying one thing and doing another...

    I do know Barry Mc Elduff also has helped members of the OO. Shocking but true.

    The reeking desperation of unionists grasping and clutching at their ever fading straws after the recent implosion and erosion of their Brutishness is hilarious.

    Zooness.

    And throwing a petrol bomb into a car containing a police officer? I have yet to hear a Unionist call for the community to hand these people in.
