One of the problems about elections is that they provide the unscrupulous with the opportunity to say whatever it takes to get elected. Now this is true of most political wannabes but when the prize is that of the Irish Presidency, the lies get greater, much greater.

Consider this;

Irish presidential candidate Martin McGuinness has said he felt ashamed when incidents, such as the Enniskillen bombing, were carried out in the name of Irish republicanism. Mr McGuinness said the 1987 bombing, in which 11 people were killed at the Cenotaph, was atrocious. He also denied he was a senior figure in the IRA at the time.

Meanwhile, back on planet Earth…

Mr Taylor told the News Letter that it was victims of the 1987 bomb who had alleged to him that Mr McGuinness was involved when he was filming for the documentary last November. “They first raised Martin McGuinness with me and I then went away and spoke to intelligence sources,” he said. “All sources, both north and south of the border, came up with the same thing – that Martin McGuinness was the leading figure in the IRA’s Northern Command at the time.” And in the programme, PSNI Detective Chief Superintendent Norman Baxter said that Northern Command knew about the plan to bomb the Remembrance Day service.

So, if McGuinness knew about it, WHY did he not stop it? The answer is because this is a cold blooded killer and his sense of right and wrong is missing. He is saying whatever it takes and the lies mount up by the day. Is THIS what Ireland seeks to represent them internationally? He is right to feel shame but then he immediately lies and seeks to put distance between himself and the reason for that shame. Let him feel abject shame for what his IRA did on that dreadful day in Enniskillen. First step. Now let him admit culpability and make himself amenable to justice. He won’t because that is the route to prison, not the Aras.

  1. Irish presidential candidate Martin McGuinness has said he felt ashamed when incidents, such as the Enniskillen bombing, were carried out in the name of Irish republicanism.

    Well this is plainly drivel. What he feels now is a sense of awkwardness that his atrocities might still resonate enough to trip his ambitions.

    There’s no doubt that the genuinely evil McGuinness thinks Enniskillen was a good day’s work.

  2. This atrocity really came to my attention because of visiting ATW and for reasons known to the regulars I hate to even see it because of our dear friend for whom this will always be an open wound.

    In fact I probably become too angry to even comment on the convenient shame of Mr. McGuiness other than to wonder what he may have said at the time.

    I share your view, in a way I hate even blogging on this because of Aileen and all the emotions involved. I was past the cenotaph recently and it’s a heart-breaking situation. The dust and the debris has cleared, the innocent buried, the families pain continues.

    I think that the genuinely evil McGuiness will have been disappointed that the slaughter of children planned for Tullyhommon that day didn’t materialise and they had to make do with our dead.

    Bless you Mahons – not much more to say beyond I appreciate the support from someone I have only met in cyberland.

    Don’t let me stop you from telling the truth about the nature of this evil. For the sake of the furure we must remember the past. Where the harm is done is when it is trivialised or we are subjected to the “move on” stuff. This McGuinness stuff is so much easier to deal with because he is being challanged. I just wish he was challanged about Tullyhommon.
    The Poppy Day Massacre and the planned Tullyhomman slaughter were evil and that evil should not be forgotten. I just get uncomfortable when it is highlighted on Remembrance Sunday as if that was the anniversary. Except on those years when Remembrance Sunday is actually on the 8th November, Remembrance Sunday should be focused on remembering The Fallen. Remembrance Sunday, when my mother remembered all those she knew from her years of service as an RAF nurse, was very important and she would hate to have played even an unwitting part in blurring that focus.

    I am opposed to the death penalty and so reject the first option. I do though find it bizarre that the latter is even an option.

    Well said.

    I had to look up Tullyhomman because I had never heard of it. For the benefit of others like me:

    “At the same time as the Enniskillen bombing, the IRA also planted a bomb 20 miles away in Tullyhommon, near Pettigo, where the Boys’ Brigade and the Girls’ Brigade were due to participate in a Remembrance Day service. The bomb failed to detonate, preventing the further loss of innocent life.”
