    Default Sallins Train Robbery

    There's a new book out on the Sallins train robbery called, " While Justice Slept: The True Story of Nicky Kelly and the Sallins Robbery"

    Mentioned in the Sunday Business Post

    It lays the blame squarely at the door of the Provos and contains an interview with the self-proclaimed ringleader. Interesting, in that it would seem to back up the claim that it was widely known at the time that it was the work of the Provos, but that the branch merely used it as an excuse to smash the newly emerging IRSP.

    And here was me thinking that there had been a big train heist in Kildare last night...
    Heavy words are so lightly thrown.

    I wonder if the crimes of the Heavy Gang and their political masters ever be properly investigated.

    Only when the last of them are dead and they can't be punished for their crimes against the Irish public.

    On his last election outing ( General Election 2011 ) he got 518 votes. That's 518 too many.
    NO votes for Labour, NO transfers either. You sold the people down the river, payback time!
