The remainder were in further education or training (14 per cent), seeking work (5 per cent) or […]A

Fiach Kelly and Harry McGee in the IT writing about Sinn Féin?s recent troubles note that there are three features of Irish politics worthy of some consideration: The first is that there is a growing wedge of voters with little loyalty to a party, individual or even a philosophy, […]A

In fact, projecting backwards, although a split was probably inevitable at some point, it […]A
