Sinn Féin Bank!?
Was a credit union equivalent pre-Independence basically. SF of then and SF of now are not the same party.
No 6 Farquarhar Street? Rings zero bells.
Dammit. I’m usually ok at anglicising words: should have dawned on me.
The then editor of the SF newspaper, Seamus O’Kelly, was murdered there by British soldiers ‘celebrating’ Armistice Day in 1918.
SF have been in continuous existence from its formation in 1905 to todays party.
Can they claim apostolic succession? Was there a formal laying on of hands for every leader?
It’s still home to Conradh Gael I think & there’s An Club Gaelige down in basement !
