Nice piece of blatant hypocrisy from the parity of esteem party this week. The Shinners were quick to jump to the microphone when the report on the Tuam mother and babies home was issued. Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Children, Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire uttered “This is a deeply shocking and sad revelation. It is a cause of national shame. The babies and children were unceremoniously buried here, without anything to identify them, without any recognition, buried, essentially in a septic tank. Now if I’m not mistaken the armed wing of Sinn Fein were not amiss in unceremoniously burying those they considered their enemies, without anything to identify them or without any recognition. Pot and kettle springs to mind but then, we are a forgetful nation and Sinn Fein are only too well aware of that.
