    We do not endorse this deal which is neither a solution, nor the basis of a solution,

    The Socialist Party supported a Yes vote - not in support of the GFA - but in order to sideline the republican and loyalist paramilitaries.

    That one is a bit like the refrain from republican hacks who claimed that if you weren't shot you weren't a revolutionary - now if you weren't jailed during the Troubles then you weren't a political activists - incidentally jailed by the same state apparatus that Sinn Fein is now defending - again - Sinn Fein - the law and order party.

    South must be seen for exactly what he was,his right wing fascism is clearly evident in his behaviour and is further evident in a series of letters he wrote to the Limerick Leader.

    Are you trying to deny that South was as i have written or do you accept the evidence that all historians have produced regarding South?

    By the way,he was not from Garryowen and i often discussed that fact with the man who wrote the words of the song.

    Your thoughts on the fascism and right wing views expressed by South would be interesting.
    you failed miserably to address the points that I raised in my comment that you replied to - so much, that you failed to refer to ol Kemmy even once in your response.

    of course they didn't.
    the image of the ol Parish Priest going around with a blackthorn stick looking for courting couples is 'cool' now.
    you read about it in the Irish Times & hear about it in RTE.
    I expect that it did happen, but it's hugely exaggerated.
    & BTW ymmeK - most of those ol Parish Priests, like the Bishops, were Blueshirts - the Party that ol Kemmy had no problem propping up.

    & of course in 1950s Ireland, it was not only "Hollywood films" that were boycotted,
    but many of the works of our renowned literary figures were banned - not by SF,
    but by FF/FG/Lab in government.

    when most peole apart from FG supporters think of Irish fascists, they think of the Blueshirts ,
    & of course ol Kemmy propped up the party associated with the Blueshirts,
    & he had no problem with their past links to fascism,
    or of their & Labour's jackboot tactics - Section 31 & the Heavy Gang.
    & again - no problem for Kemmy.

    but surely ymmeK, there must have been a good popular ballad written in honour of ol Kemmy ???
    the Healy Rae of his day,
    & FG lackey.

    BTW ymmek - I reckon that ol Kemmy didn't like this ballad any more than 'Sean South of Garryoen
    & neither do you.'

    Many Irishmen heard the call of Franco
    Joined Hitler and Mussolini too
    Propaganda from the pulpit and newspapers
    Helped O’Duffy to enlist his crew

    The word came from Maynooth, “support the Nazis”
    The men of cloth failed again
    When the Bishops blessed the Blueshirts in Dun Laoghaire
    As they sailed beneath the swastika to Spain

    there were more Blueshirts at ol Kemmy's funeral than they were at South's.

    You nailed it unintentionally, you could be writing about SF PROPPING UP THE DUP and of course the bould Sean would have liked nothing better than to go to Spain to defend the church against the red menace and stand by the good catholic Franco if only he had been around.

    Maria Duce was tailormade for Sean,and no sacrifice was too great to defeat the godless socialists in the mind of Sean South.

    Speaking about an "APE",
    When do you believe poor SF will win 75+ seats in the 26?
    Many thanks.

    So you are inferring that the thousands who sing Sean South in Ireland are right wing religous zealots ? While your brother supported the right wing religious govts of FG and FF

    Comedy gold from making waves COMEDY GOLD Even by Trot looney standards this is taking the biscuit

    That one is a bit like the refrain from republican hacks who claimed that if you weren't shot you weren't a revolutionary - now if you weren't jailed during the Troubles then you weren't a political activists - incidentally jailed by the same state apparatus that Sinn Fein is now defending - again - Sinn Fein - the law and order party.
    Again how many of the Trots went to prison for political actions in the north ? By the way, seen Brid Smith on The Week In Politics and she stated there should be no border in Ireland and advocated a border poll. Clearly the PBP Trots are a few steps ahead of their Trot rivals (not hard to be honest) in the six counties. They have that niche cornered in the north with supporters and voters and should gain a few seats at council level - while your crowd in the six could meet in a telephone box !!
