    Interesting that Mary Hanafin is looking for a deputy leaders debate but without maru Lou. Same old same old politics of exclusion. Guess she’s just afraid of a real republican being on the panel to show up the farce of the soldiers of destiny. Pathetic

    Mary Lou, were’nt you once a Fianna Fail party member. Why did you leave to join Sinn Fein? I am considering voting for you. How can you convince me.
