Booked Out

The Shinners may have won the war – but they haven’t won the battle.

Sinn Fein managed to pull the wool over the Oireachtas’ eye by booking the historic Round Room at the Mansion House on the day of the 90th anniversary of the sitting of the first Dail – January 21.

As a result, the Oireachtas had to make do with holding their commemoration a day earlier on January 20.

But it seems that the Oireachtas has gotten its own back on the Shinners by booking the Round Room a full TEN YEARS IN ADVANCE for the 100th anniversary of the first Dail in 2019!!

God only knows where we will all be in 10 years time but the Oireachtas were lucky to be given the date in 2019.

It seems that Sinn Fein tried to book the Round Room for the centenary of the 1916 Rising in 2016 two years ago – and were told that it was too far in advance to book anything.

“Disappointing” is the term being used by Sinn Fein.
