Sinn Féin make a 'booby' with unfortunate typo in Mary Lou McDonald's election leaflet

The late hunger striker Bobby Sands is revered in Sinn Féin so a typo in Mary Lou McDonald's election leaflet will leave her team particularly red-faced.
It quotes the Republican prisoner who died during his protest as saying "everyone, Republican or otherwise has their part to play".
But in a somewhat unfortunate error, the line is attributed to "Booby Sands".
A Sinn Fein spokeswoman said the leaflet was part of a small print run in the Cabra area but that it had been "withdrawn".
"It contained a typo that should never have been printed or distributed," she added.
