    Default Fianna Fail should apologise to Magdalene laundry women

    Fianna Fail should apologise for their role in magdalene laundry scandal

    It would be good if Fianna Fail were to issue an apology to the woman of the Magdalene laundry.

    After all, they were the party in power (usually in single party government) during most of the period when this was going on. Not that you would ever suspect this when listening to their spokespersons.

    Then again such an apology would be worthless were it to be as insincere as the FF apology for what they did to our economy.

    Shinner calls for "worthless" apology.

    Yes they should, as should the current Taoiseach.

    Tis a shame party politics has taken over this issue. The only entity that should apologise is the State.

    Christ, but M. Martin isn't the bluntest tool in the box, is he?

    The political chuzpah of Fianna Fáil is not dead yet.

    I'm awestruck with the cleverness of the timing!

    What a c*nt!

    I doubt they would be genuinely sorry, so why bother?

    I'm inclined towards reading and digesting the report a bit more before politicians start shooting their mouths off in all sort of directions.

    Ironic isn't it that both himself and Adams were forced into this kind of apology in recent weeks.

    No apology though from Martin on the substantive issue of what happened to the women in the laundries under FF government.

    Martin was caught out on that one all right.

    Ironic that both Martin & Adams forced into apologies in recent weeks by unfolding events.

    This is nothing more than a cynical political move to help him on the doorsteps later in the locals.
