Embrace Of Angels


Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald at the funeral of Chris Wall, Mr Ahern’s friend and advisor for four decades, at St Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin on January 4

This morning.

Via Irish Times Letters:

Regarding Pat Leahy’s article mentioning the funeral of my brother Chris Wall (“Is a half-embrace at a funeral a sign that Sinn Féin and Fianna Fáil will cosy up together?”, for the record, Mary Lou McDonald was there as a neighbour and Bertie Ahern as a long-time friend.

My brother’s funeral was not the forum for any political purpose.

    Sadly Martin was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict with his haridresser,so that left Mary Lou as the only leader of a irish political party who bothered attending,seems like the family is a bit upset with the very public FF snub,how long was he on their national executive.,,.fair play Mary Lou for bothering at all.
