THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN the Fianna Fáil logo and that adopted by the Reform Alliance for its conference in the RDS this weekend have been played down by Lucinda Creighton.
The TD and most prominent member of the nascent political alliance of expelled Fine Gael TDs pointed out that the use of the harp is not unusual given it’s the State’s national emblem, saying it’s “hardly original”.
The similarities between the logo and that of Fianna Fáil have been noted by several commentators including Transport Minister Leo Varadkar who said on Twitter earlier this week:
Creighton told TheJournal.ie yesterday that the emblem is being used for the conference in the RDS and said it is not the logo of the Reform Alliance.
“We don’t have one,” she insisted.
Fianna Fáil declined to comment.
