    Presidential Poll 2011, Michael D Higgins Tops the poll

    There has been a slow start to polling in the Presidential Election, however, early indicators are that Labour and Fine Gael voters are turning out in force particularly in subburban areas. Sinn Fein are trying to rally their potential voters in Finglas and other lower socio-economic areas. While the election will go to second and third counts, it is expected that Michael D Higgins will be elected on the transfers from Gay Mitchell, with Sean Gallagher coming in second and Sinn Fein Candidate Martin McGuinness coming in third. The transfers from Dana, Mary Davis and David Norris are expected to have little impact on the final result as their vote will be so small.

    Presidential Election 2011: In a second poll conducted by the Irish Observer following this week’s revelations about Sean Gallaghers money matters, Dana’s blow-out, Martin McGuinness’s disclosed interview with Hot Press magazine (1985) where McGuinness said it was OK for IRA members to murder Gardai, and which included 1000 respondents in Dublin and Meath show Michael D Higgins leading the way in the Presidential election 2011. Michael D Higgins took 39% of the total poll while Sean Gallagher polled in second place with 31%, Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness came in third place with 15% up 1% from last week, Gay Mitchell took 9%, Mary Davis 1%, David Norris 1% and Dana 1% with the remaining 3% of respondents stating that they had not yet decided.
    When respondents were asked why they Would vote for particular candidates the following categories took precedent:
    1.    Sean Gallagher (good business sense)
    2.    Michael D Higgins (can be trusted)
    3.    Martin McGuinness (realised that violence was wrong)
    4.    Gay Mitchell (consistent)
    5.    Mary Davis (work with Special Olympics)
    6.    David Norris (Gay Rights)
    7.    Dana (won the eurovision)
    This is the second poll conducted by the Irish Observer for the Irish Presidential Election 2011, however, it should be noted that the Irish Observer, using public polls, predicted the result of the General Election within a one-two seat error.
    This poll is a snap shot in time and should be viewed in that context; The Irish Observer would suggest that the Presidential campaign winner will be Michael D Higgins and that while he will not achieve the quota on the first count the majority of transfers from Gay Mitchell will go to Michael D Higgins and this will see Michael D Higgins elected as President of Ireland.
    Martin McGuinness will pick up a similar vote to that achieved by Sinn Fein in the General Election.
    Martin McGuinness Sinn Fein Candidate
    When Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams TD, gave his father Gerry Adams Snr a full-IRA military style funeral, Gerry Adams knew that his father was a serial child rapist, when Gerry Adams helped his brother Liam Adams set up home in Dundalk in County Louth, Gerry Adams knew that his brother Liam was a child rapist.
    It has never been an issue for Sinn Fein activists to commit, facilitate and conceal the rape of children. On many occasions Martin McGuinness used his position in the Provisional IRA to ensure that victims of Sinn Fein/IRA criminals, including rapists, were not allowed to report their abuse to the authorities. This is no surprise, Martin McGuinness did not discriminate when it came to the physical abuse of children, McGuinness has been forced to publicly admit that he used physical violence on his own children as well as brutalising other children in the community.
    When the IRA kidnapped, tortured, murdered and secretly buried school boy Columbia McVeigh in Monaghan, Martin McGuinness had no issue regularly meeting with and cooperating with the men and women who carried out that evil act, it is no , surprise that the Detective who found the bodies of the children kidnapped, molested, murdered and secretly buried by Moore’s Murderers Myra Hindley and Ian Brady is now searching the foot hills of Monaghan trying to find the body of schoolboy Columbia McVeigh.
    In 1985 Martin McGuinness gave a recorded interview to Michael O’Higgins SC for Hot Press Magazine in which Martin McGuinness stated that the murder of Gardai and Irish Army soldiers by Provisional IRA criminals was justified. This declaration by McGuinness allowed the IRA to murder in cold blood Garda Jerry McCabe in 1996.
    Martin McGuinness has been involved with the British Secret Service for almost 40 years, should we be surprised that the murder of Irish Catholics and the rape of Catholic Children is not at the top of McGuinness’s concern list.
    Paul Quinn Murder by Sinn Fein/IRA criminals
    The parents of a man, beaten to death in County Monaghan four years ago by Sinn Fein/IRA criminals, have said they remain hopeful his killers will be brought to justice.
    Stephen and Breege Quinn were speaking on the anniversary of their son Paul's murder.
    Last night, hundreds of people attended a mass in memory of the 21-year-old in his hometown of Cullyhanna in south Armagh.
    Paul Quinn was savagely attacked by a gang of masked men after being lured to a farm in Tullycora, near the village of Oram in 2007.
    His parents say they still believe people living locally "know all about" Paul's murder and have called on them to go to the gardaí or the PSNI to "get it off their chest".
    They blame IRA members for the killing, and this view is supported by the Gardai and PSNI, as Sinn Fein/IRA criminals continue to maintain a stronghold on smuggling in the border areas.
    Despite a major cross-border investigation into the murder and a significant number of arrests, as yet no-one has been charged with offences relating to the fatal attack.
    Stephen Quinn said at the time of his son's death, young men were being regularly beaten in the area but that since then this has stopped because the "people have spoken out" and want "no more of that kind of brutality".
    He says he believes he will get justice in the courts for his son.
    Liam Adams Extradition
    Sinn Fein and the IRA have a long history in relation to the torture, murder, mutilation and rape of children. The IRA kidnapping, torture, murder and secret burial of school boy Columbia Mc Veigh in Monaghan in the early 1970s showed clearly that Sinn Fein and the IRA have more in common with the Moore’s murderers Myra Hindley and Ian Brady. The body of Columbia Mc Veigh has never been found, although the IRA have admitted that they murdered and secretly buried the child in Monaghan.
    Liam Dominic Adams, brother of Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams TD appeared before the Dublin High Court on Tuesday 26th July 2011 for an extradition hearing. Liam Dominic Adams is wanted in Northern Ireland for the alleged Rape of his daughter Aine when she was four years old. Gerry Adams TD has already admitted that he knew about the alleged Rape since the 1980s and that he believed his niece Aine when she told him that Liam had Raped her over a number of years, beginning when she was four years old. However, Gerry Adams TD did not report the matter to the authorities and it was only in 2007 when Gerry Adams realised that Aine would no longer remain silent that he made a statement to the PSNI through his solicitor.
    Liam Adams was a senior member of both the IRA and Sinn Fein in Belfast and Dundalk, long after Gerry Adams TD knew about his brother’s alleged Rape of a child, Gerry Adams continued to promote Liam within the republican movement, giving Liam unquestioned access to children both in Belfast and Dundalk. Gerry Adams TD also concealed the fact that his father Gerry Adams Snr was a child rapist and then proceeded to give his father a full IRA funeral to further compound the hurt of those children raped by Gerry Adams Snr.
    Child Abuse and Sinn Fein
    As the Cloyne Report was published 16/7/2011 one could not help but feel sick at the comments by some Sinn Fein politicians who seem to think that Sinn Fein have clean hands when it comes to the rape of children and the cover-ups of child rape in Ireland. Caoimhghin O Caolain TD seemed detached from the reality of his party’s history with child rape.
    In recent times Sinn Fein have tried desperately to cover-up the fact that many of their members have engaged in the rape and sexual abuse of children. This cover-up was heightened when Liam Dominic Adams, brother of Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams TD, was exposed as a child rapist by his daughter Aine Tyrrell. Liam Adams will face an extradition hearing in the High Court in Dublin on the 26th July 2011, in relation to allegations that he raped his daughter Aine from she was four years old.
    Gerry Adams said he believed his niece when she made the allegations in 1987. However, Liam Adams went onto become a prominent figure in Sinn Féin. As chairman of the Louth comhairle ceantair in 1996, he was the party's most senior official in the county.
    He canvassed with Gerry Adams in the 1997 Dáil elections and went on to hold positions, including treasurer of a cumann, in West Belfast despite previous claims from his brother that he had long been expelled from Sinn Féin. So while Gerry Adams and known, and by his own public admission, believed that his brother Liam was a child rapist, Gerry continued to offer succour and promote Liam within the republican movement.
    However, Liam Dominic Adams is not the only skeleton in the Sinn Fein/IRA wardrobe, Michael Marron a Sinn Fein/IRA activist from Barcroft Park in Newry who ran a smear campaign against former IRA man, turned peace campaigner, Eamon Collins (murdered by the IRA 1999) pleaded guilty and was sentenced to several years in prison for raping a female child in Newry. Marron like many hundreds of others had used his unquestioned position in Sinn Fein/IRA to carry out his evil deeds against little children.
    It is well known that an IRA ‘punishment squad’ that operated out of Drumargh Park in Armagh City was made up of child rapists and paedophiles who were given a free hand as many of them were informers, this group was made up of members from Armagh and Monaghan and its informers never severed one day in jail.
    In Monaghan Town, Brendan Toal, father of Monaghan, Sinn Fein Councillor, Malachy Toal was arrested and questioned on two occasions in relation to separate instances of child molestation at Mullaghmatt housing estate in Monaghan Town. As the children sexually molested were only 4 years old the DPP decided the children would not be able to give evidence in an open court. Indeed in 2000 Donna Toal, Malachy Toal’s daughter set herself up as a campaigner for victims of sexual crime, however, at the very time that she was ‘campaigning’ her own cousin on her mother’s side of the family was before Monaghan Circuit Court for the systematic sexual abuse of his two nieces.
    Sinn Fein and the IRA in Belfast have had a long history with child abuse and rape, Gerry Adams Snr, father of Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams TD was a known child rapist, but his crimes were concealed by Sinn Fein and the IRA and he was actually given a full IRA military funeral.
    The OC of the provisional IRA in north Belfast used his position on many occasions to rape and molest women and children, when victims did go forward to the authorities these victims and their families were forced out of the area by Sinn Fein/IRA, this pattern was repeated in all areas where Sinn Fein/IRA wielded power.
    In Armagh County it is known that several women and children were raped by an IRA active service unit, this unit included Aidan Starrs who was a prolific sex offender, all three members of this unit were shot dead by the IRA for being informers, the person who carried out their murders, Freddie Scappactini was in fact an M15 agent and this is now public knowledge.
    Martin Forbes (53) from Strabane in County Tyrone was a senior member of Sinn Fein/IRA, he also used the alias Drew, Forbes had been a senior member of the IRA and had served several years in the IRA Blocks at Long Kesh for IRA activity, upon his release Forbes had been selected by the Sinn Fein leadership to run as a candidate in local government elections. Forbes had used his position in Sinn Fein/IRA to sexual molest both women and children.
    In stark contrast to the crimes being committed by Sinn Fein/IRA members and being concealed by those organisations, Sinn Fein/IRA actually used their mouth-piece tabloid An Phoblacht/Republican News to lambast people who were outside of Sinn Fein/IRA but who came before the courts for sex related and lesser crimes. While Sinn/Fein IRA were lambasting petty criminals in their tabloid rag, behind closed doors Sinn Fein/IRA from their leadership down were concealing the Rape and sexual molestation of children. Niall O Dowd, Editor, Irish Voice tabloid in New York who has been a cheer leader for Sinn Fein over many years never mentioned any of this Sinn Fein/IRA paedophile activity.
    In Dublin several child rapists worked hand in hand with Sinn Fein/IRA, Christy Griffin and Stephen ‘Rossi’ Walsh were key players associated with Sinn Fein/IRA in Dublin, both Christy Griffin and Rossi Walsh are now serving long sentences for child rape. The list of child molesters and rapists exposed in Sinn Fein/IRA over the years is endless; however, those who protected these rapists and concealed their crimes remain at large.
    One stands amazed that so-called republicans can justify concealing the rape of children and protecting their rapists, however, one must remember that Sinn Fein/IRA is an organisation that has for four-decades been engaged in the kidnap, rape, murder, mutilation and torture of men, women and children the length and breadth of Ireland.

      Martin Mcguinness, is the only one who has Irelands interest at heart. The others are in it for the 200,000Euro's a year plus expensis. Michael D Higgins gave the right away to Europe to control our Bogs and is more concerned about his image abroad than he is for the Irish people.

    The only interests that Martin McGuinness represents is that of murderers and child molesters such as Liam Adams

      It is shocking that a political party associated with terrorists can be considered as legitimate in a modern Western democracy.

    Sinn Fein Candidate Martin McGuinness was firmly rejected by the Irish electorate - Sinn Fein could only muster a fifth of the vote achived by the winner Michael D Higgins (:

    Yes, Martin McGuiness is a murderer of British Soldiers, players and inocent people. I agree 100% BUT so was Nelson Mandella and his wife.
    Mr Higgins was on TV the other night going on about what he was going to do for Humanitarian Aid in other Countries, shortly after this was an advert for an Irish Childrens Charity, telling the story of a young child who's mother could not afford to feed or cloth her properly or heat the house. What is Higgins doing about the plight of his own people who are suffering in this economic down turn?
