Paddy Holohan proving to be a great addition to the Party in the south!!

Look any party has it's share of lunatics and SF are definitely no different but the fact that they're defending him is just stupid.

Never heard of the lad till this week but his views are pretty reprehensible and was made apologise (which was pretty poor IMO) for the Varadkar comments.

His latest outburst should see the end of his political career but I don't know how you can say the Shinners are defending him especially after reading that Joe.ie article.

"These are not appropriate comments to make and are not the views of Sinn Féin."

Ms McDonald said she believed Mr Holohan said he was misinterpreted because he was probably frustrated that the remarks gave the impression he held views different to the ones he is associated with.

Don't see any defence of his position in this.

Shinners have suspended him.

Looks like he took one too many belts to the head.

This is the eejit that Elisha McCallion was using to help bump up votes in recent election. Hi no odds he will probably be back in few months like that buck eejit McElduff

Don't shoot me here but in regards to the family man comments I don't really see anything wrong with it. A father  who goes to work and has kids in school would better understand the struggles of juggling work, pick ups, childcare costs etc over a person with no kids.

Much in the same way that a woman would far better understand women's issues than a man would.

I don't see how anyone could take offence by that. The other comment however about heritage was rather stupid.

If it had then of course he is in the wrong. I have just read the clips in the newspaper and was reading them at face value.

Just by reading the comments it could apply to any single policital such as Angela Merkel. Leo being gay should not come into the equation. I wonder if people are reading the undertones because Leo is gay and if that is the case then any warranted criticism can be swotted away as homophobic.

Clearly if he was only saying it due to Leo being gay then it's out of order.

Wee Jamie wants to know how they're going to prevent discrimination against non-Irish speakers when it comes to recruitment for the the position of... Irish language translators.

Possibly if he had made an isolated comment about 'Family Man', Holohan might have got away with a yellow card,  but that coupled with the reference to Leo's Indian background separating him from Irish history, not only highlights the homophobic bias but dives full on into fascist ideology - Blood and Soil.   Here Holohan hits two birds with the one stone, Leo's ethnicity and he implicitly states that an Irish person's connection to Ireland runs through generations of Irish blood. He goes further to imply that the pure Irish connection to Irish history only/mainly  flows via the father, possibly there's a drip feed from the mother, but insignificant.
Out and out total gobshitery.
