A question for Sinn Fein's leading presidential hopeful regarding Irish Red Cross

In the event presidential hopeful Mr. Martin Mc Guinness decides to enlighten us in detail on his IRA past perhaps he could clarify the exact role played by the Irish Red Cross in the establishment of the Provisional IRA.

At the time of the Arms Trial involving Charles Haughey and co, the late Leslie Bean De Barra, wife of guerrilla leader Tom Barry, and someone with known IRA sympathies, was director of the Irish Red Cross. Justin O'Brien, in his highly authoritative work, the Arms Trial, says the money from the Department of Finance, originally transferred to the Irish Red Cross Society to protect refugees from the North, was in fact used "to finance the emergence of the Provisional IRA". For readers not familiar, Charles Haughey, a former Irish Prime Minister, was charged with smuggling guns and funding to the Provisional IRA in the early days of his political career (1970s). It led to one of the most controversial and bitter trials in Irish history.

If Mr. Mc Guinness becomes President he automatically becomes President of the Irish Red Cross. Now there's irony for you. President of Ireland and President of the very organisation that played a role in the establishment of the IRA, which as everyone knows was an illegal terrorist organisation. Martin Mc Guinness was a leading member of the IRA for decades.

    So the rumour that certain members of the Irish Red Cross made available an ambulance, to smuggle guns may not be as far fetched as it sounded.

    Where is this all going to end?

    We all make choices in life, some bad some good, neverthelss they are our choices to make. The Irish Red Cross was one of those choices and it now is working its murking powers to try to damage both my character and my name. Some of the members of the Red Cross gather and are persuading that anyone who is exposing the Red Cross is a demon and should be treated as a demon.

    I am not Noel Wardick, but I will tell you all that the day you try to destroy my family will be the rock you will firmly perish on. So gather as you will and speak as you will, but like Rosa Parks I will be stalwart in my committement to bring all those responsible for wrong doing to justice. This is not like the catholic church there will be no Bishops to protect you.

    Do your worst, but we shall seek comfort in the knowledge that you will be held accountable.
