When caught out in debates in the Dail, the former Workers Party mouthpieces Gilmore, Rabbitte, Kathleen Lynch are so quick to bring up Sinn Fein's past, any chance they might explain their knowledge and involvement with Workers Party ' fund raising ' in the past ?
And surely Enda and FG who pride themselves on been the " law and order " party cannot allow this revelations to go unquestioned ?? Afer all, he's quick enough to Sinn Fein with "what about Jerry McCabe .... what about Jean McConville " etc ?
" When Seán Garland penned his infamous “Moscow Letter” in 1986, the former Workers’ Party general secretary said his cash-strapped party raised funds through “special activities”. Three years later, in a letter to East Berlin seen by The Irish Times, he dropped the euphemism and admitted “legal and illegal means have been employed by us”. The admission, in a letter on headed party notepaper dated February 26th, 1989, provides confirmation from a leading Workers’ Party official of what was already widely known: that its military wing, the Official IRA, was involved in bank robberies and racketeering.
