Return To Sender


Front page of today’s Kerryman

This morning.

A 1,500-word apology  “to the people of Caherciveen” for what has unfolded at a direct provision centre in has been published in newspapers, including The Kerryman and The Irish Examiner.

Since April,  25 people in the former Skellig Star Hotel in Cahersiveen, including three staff, have been infected with Covid-19.

The letter can be read in full here

    If this isn’t a resigning matter I don’t know what is

    Complete lack of humanity and empathy – or even the flimsiest veneer of Ministerial gravitas
    I hope his fall is ugly, scathing and mortifying enough to stop another Flanagan prodigy entering the family business

    A political party hack more interested in perception than the right course of action

    If the Blueshirts lurking and skurking around here thought I had a low opinion of them before
    they’re gonta find a whole new level of opprobrium to defend now

    so go on call an election

    I’d nearly run against him – just to make sure people that vote for him are every bit as useless, self serving FYJ, and yes racist as Charlie Flanagan; they are his enablers so they can wipe his smearing over their faces too

      Weasel words from the Flanagan.

      On March 31st he said his Department has been working intensively since the Covid-19 outbreak began “to ensure that to the best of our ability, we protect the health and welfare of asylum seekers and refugees availing of Direct Provision services”.

      “At all times, we are guided by the HSE and the National Public Health Emergency Team and we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the safety and well-being of all applicants.”

    Opening myself up to a kicking here but, having actually read the letter in full, I don’t see anything to be up in arms about.

    Any mention of the sham King of Kerry Michael Healy Rae’s role in selling the hotel?

      A textbook example of faux ignorance(of facts), portraying himself as a poor auld who knows nothing at all…about anything. God was invoked a few times as in; That’s the God’s honest truth. Haven’t heard such protestations since Clinton’s famous multiple denials.
