Shinners left with a Shiner

First Christy Burke and now New Ross Cllr John Dwyer - Sinn Fein
doesn’t appear to have a lot of luck hanging on to its members.

Christy Burke was the first to jump ship just days after the June 5
local elections after being re-elected as a Sinn Fein candidate. He is
now an Independent.

And just this week, New Ross Cllr John Dwyer announced he was leaving
the ranks of Sinn Fein and re-starting his political life as an
Independent - also after winning a seat under the Sinn Fein banner.

As the great Oscar Wilde might have said if he was around today - ‘to
lose one member may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks
like carelessness’!
