Ó Caoláin leads Sinn Féin debate on Dublin-Monaghan Bombings

17 May, 2011 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin will use its Private Members’ Time this evening to debate the Dublin-Monaghan Bombings and anticipates the support of the house on the issue.

The debate will be concluded tomorrow.

Cavan-Monaghan Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin said:

“This motion reiterates the all-party resolution of 10th July 2008 which called on the British Government to release all files relating to the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

“To date no action has been taken despite the motion receiving unanimous backing from all parties and it is for this reason that we are taking the opportunity to restate that call and are urging An Taoiseach Enda Kenny to press this matter directly with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

“Today is the anniversary of those bombings which many believe were carried out with the involvement of British intelligence. Today is also the first day of the queen of England’s state visit, a visit which we in Sinn Féin oppose.
