“Would 50 Murders Be An Exaggeration?”

Dublin North West Sinn Fein TD Dessie Ellis celebrating his 50th murder at the General Election election 2011 count centre, in the RDS.

Irish Independent:: “I know you’ve spoken before about your time in the IRA. Would 50 murders be an exaggeration?”

Dessie Ellis: “I don’t know what they’re on about so I’m not going to comment on it, you know.”

Irish Independent: “Do you know if any of the bombs you made resulted in deaths?”

Ellis: “I’m not going to comment on anything in relation to anything that people are speculating on, okay?”

Fair enough.
