Empty Gesture

Fine Gael is due to table a private members' motion in the Dail his evening expressing their solidarity with the family of murdered Belfast man Robert McCartney.

The motion due to be tabled by Fine Gael today will call on those who have information about the murder to come forward and give statements to the police.

This is a nice gesture but what will it achieve?Nothing.I highly doubt that people with information on the murder will come forward due to prompting from Fine Gael.Instead,Fine Gael and the other parties in the Republic should join together as one condemning this murder and appealing for information.This incident goes beyond party politics.We should instead see all Irish people showing their solidarity and expressing their opposition to IRA criminality.
