    Default 200 applications to join Cumann blocked

    ...rumours flying around FF in Kerry that 200 applications for membership of the Kenmare Cumann, home of Senator Mark Daly, were mysteriously blocked without explanation. He had protested about the matter and the party is now finally going to examine the issue and find out the whys and wherefores. It strikes me that in our current predicament the party would be a lot better off welcoming all new members rather than putting up obstacles, but guess its a sign of how things might be in the new one member one vote era.

    200 applications to join a rural Cumann? The mind boggles.

    Those days are gone, these applications had to have names, addresses, mobiles, emails where appropriate. No graveyards dug up or double jobbing!

    I heard they we're all sheep from Tuosist and considered too intelligent and therefore a threat to the leadership.
    A few weeks before my grandfather died, he started dipping his feet in a bucket of lard.
    He went downhill very fast after that.

    The person who doesn't care what the most popular party in the country according to polls, and the largest Opposition party, does is the person who has no interest in or clue about politics.
