If Gemma doesn’t get at least nominated the state is rotten to the core.

    @Arthur O’Neill:

    Veronica Guerin’s own family have asked O’Doherty to stop spreading “hurtful and untrue” lies.

    Same with Mary Boyle’s aunt.

    And an anti vaxxer to boot.

    Worst. Candidate. Ever.

    @Arthur O’Neill: She doesn’t help her cause by continuously threatening to sue people for slander as in Clare last week.

    @Tom Purcell: I’ll bet you that she’s the type who’d report it to the police if she witnessed a crime and expect them to do something about it!

    Fine Gaels social media minions purposely spreading lies about her. They’re petrified as to what damage she would do by revealing their sleazy dealings.

    Lies?

    “Jimmy Guerin speaking now. “In 22 yrs only two people I have come across say John Gilligan is not responsible for Veronica’s murder: one is John Gilligan. The other is Gemma O’Doherty.” Asks for his sister to be allowed rest in peace to applause from other councillors”

    Gutless from the conspiracy theorist.

    @Tomás Ó Cárthaigh:
    Certain folks don’t wish to comment on that Tomas. Some are working to a clear agenda. Which is an ongoing attempt to undermine Gemma O Doherty in order to protect the status quo. Which in turn only serves to protect child murderers like Mary Boyle’s killer. Real justice for her death is collateral.

    @Brinster:
    In addition.
    Just because Jimmy Guerin says/thinks something doesn’t mean it’s true. He might not like it but it was Veronica herself who exposed the initial collusion between the state and Martin Cahill. She wrote about it and O Doherty followed it up.
    What did Veronica mean when she wrote – The General was in on an extraordinary deal with the state concerning the Father Malloy case?
    No tin foil required, it’s a fair question.

    Thanks for the link @Brinster but what exactly does it purport to show and what bearing does it have on a presidential election? Is the murder of Veronica Guerin going to be an issue on this election? Are you trying to posit a view that only candidates who accept a certain narrative, should be considered for the role? You are being rather vague, I’m afraid.

    @Oscar Duggan: Gemma Doherty’s crazy conspiratorial view on the death of Veronica Guerin is an issue in the nominations process that is going on at the the moment. Veronica Guerin’s murder or Gemma O’Doherty’s views on it will not be an issue in the Presidential election

    @CrabaRev: Ok, so that helps me out a little bit but not a lot. (You’re not Leo operating under an anonymous account, by any chance?). Tell me then, what is the view that Gemma Doherty (sic) holds on the death of Veronica Guerin? Why is it crazy and why is it conspiratorial? Why is an issue in the nominations process that is going on at the moment but not in the presidential election (which hasn’t happened yet so, that might explain that but, how are you able to see so far into the future?)? Maybe, if there is time after all of that, you might care to tell us all who you are, how you got here and whether you need any assistance finding your way back.
