Bobby Storey could influence how the Republic of Ireland is governed, should Sinn Féin come to power.

In November last year, Storey's sway within the 'Republican Movement' was exposed with the publication of a memo he sent to all party representatives on how to respond to the rape of Mairia Cahill and the subsequent IRA cover-up.

His memo, sent to every Sinn Féin representative (around 400 in all), described Cahill's campaign for justice as "political opposition to Sinn Féin".
