Ré Nua ag teastáil san iascaireacht

1 February 2007

Ceann de na míbhuntáistí ba mhó a ghabh leis na Fiche Sé Chontae ag dul isteach san Aontas Eorpach ná gur thréig siad acmhainn shaibhir agus luachmhar i dtaobh na hiascaireachtaí lasmuigh chósta na hÉireann. Glactar go ginearálta go bhfuil fearann mara na hÉireann ar cheann de na hiascaireachtaí is saibhre ar domhan - ar aon dul leis an bhfearann iascaireachta ó chósta Thalamh an Éisc, Oirthear Cheanada, an fearann iascaireachta ba shaibhre de réir dealraimh.

BY FRANK FARRELL Sometimes reality and hard news manages to overcome media prejudice and to some extent this was reflected in the coverage of last weekend's Sinn Féin Ard Fheis that voted to change its policy on policing. Two of the main newspapers, the Irish Examiner and Irish Independent, headlined the obvious political truth that the political onus now lies on the DUP and The Irish Times front page story also conceded that pressure would now fall on the DUP to enter a power sharing executive. The Star took the same line and editorialised to this effect although its editor, Ger Colleran, ever fearful of accusations that he is soft in republicanism, added the sanctimonious rider about the IRA being responsible for 30 years of violence (no mention of RUC collusion, MI5 murder and British state violence, naturally).

Letter to the Taoiseach By Barry McElduff

1 February 2007

I found myself in a funny place on Monday. I was reading an Irish Times editorial which was effectively praising Sinn Féin. It said that Sinn Féin's move "represents the penultimate piece of a democratic jigsaw" and it argued that "all that remains is for Ian Paisley and the Democratic Unionist Party to join with Sinn Féin and others in a power-sharing Executive."
