Sir - Any reasonable, sensible person having read the excellent articles by Jody Corcoran, Jim Cusack, Eoghan Harris, Mairia Cahill and Ruth Edwards in last week's Sunday Independent would never, ever vote for Sinn Fein.

For Gerry Adams to state at a parade in Dundalk that he is as proud of Mairead Farrell as of the Volunteers of 1916 is outrageous. Mairead Farrell was on a bombing mission with 600lbs of Semtex that could have killed and maimed hundreds of ­innocent people in Gibraltar.

If Sinn Fein were in ­government with other parties and Independents, they would never have an agreement to pass a budget. Sinn Fein in the ­Assembly in the North have held off on signing the Social Welfare Bill for nearly 12 months, which could lead to the end of power sharing in the North.
