Sinn Fein TDs should respect God, not party

When questioned about the loss of 13 Sinn Fein elected representatives, following outbreaks of internal disputes, Sinn Fein's new leader Mary Lou McDonald glibly described it as coming down to "interpersonal dynamics".

We are left to wonder what verbal gem she will bestow on us if, next month, two Sinn Fein TDs, Peadar Toibin and Carol Nolan, exercise their God-given right to vote against the referendum bill for the repeal of the eighth amendment.

The new leader's hope is that every Sinn Fein parliamentarian will respect the decided will of the members of the ard fheis.

It is hoped that the two TDs in question will ignore the will of the ard fheis and respect the will of God.
