Mairead Farrell Memorial Event causes row

Jennifer McCann the Sinn Fein MLA for West Belfast decided to book the Long Gallery in order to host an event to commemorate Mairead Farrell – the IRA member who was shot dead by the SAS in Gibraltar.

The media, Sinn Fein and the DUP all had a field day.

There is no doubt that good old fashioned rows like this play very well with the traditional supporters of both parties.
