MARY Lou McDonald declared that the “barbarians are through the gates” as she addressed a packed Sinn Féin rally in Dublin’s Liberty Hall last night.

Before she had even spoken, the Sinn Féin leader received two standing ovations from the crowd at Siptu HQ in the heart of her Dublin Central constituency.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s declaration that these rallies were the next phase in Sinn Féin’s campaign of “intimidation and bullying” appear to have served only to generate greater public interest in them.
