Sinead O’Connor & Sinn Fein – Whatever Happened To That?

Ed Moloney on Sinead O'Connor's bid to join Sinn Fein. Ed Moloney is a prominent Irish journalist living in New York. He was the project director for Boston College’s oral history project. He blogs at The Broken Elbow.
Remember Sinead O’Connor joining Sinn Fein and asking for a meeting with Gerry Adams? To discuss, ‘the creation of a new country’ and ‘a private matter’. That was back in mid-December. More than a month ago?

Have any of Ireland’s journos bothered to follow up on that, or has the story just disappeared into the mystic, or down the drain like the dregs from the last pint of Guinness? Have they just plain forgotten and moved on to the next fleeting story? And what was ‘the private matter’? I’d like to know. Wouldn’t you?

Probably wanted to know how expensive it was for Gerry to get his arse stitched back up...and was it not dangerous bouncing nude on the trampoline afterwards with the dog?
