Senior members of Government calling on Sinn Féin’s Housing Spokesperson to apologise to Gardaí
Senior members of Government are calling on Sinn Féin’s Housing Spokesperson to apologise to Gardaí.
It’s after Eoin O’Broin tweeted a picture of current members of the force super-imposed onto a caricature painting of a famine eviction.
In it, Gardaí are seen standing over a person on the ground who is being forced to leave their home, and it was posted hours after the eviction ban expired.
Fine Gael TD Alan Farrell has branded the posting of the picture by Deputy O’Broin as “utterly pathetic”:
“I think it is entirely inappropriate for a prominent member of the opposition to frame An Garda Siochana in such a way. You know what would reiterate what the Minister for Justice has said that the mask has slipped on Sinn Féin who we all know have a chequered history when it comes to respecting the authority up and down the country.”
