It is sickening to hear Sinn Fein, an organisation which consistently supported the IRA as the terror group who left a trail of bodies in this country and elsewhere, talk about a "hierarchy of victims."

One of its councillors, Jonathan Graham remarked that he and his party are opposed to a motion before South Dublin County Council to name the flyover on the N7 at Newlands Cross, Dublin in honour of the murdered Sunday Independent journalist Veronica Guerin, callously shot dead at this spot because of her crusading crime writing.

Mr Graham went on to say that this opposition had "nothing to do with Veronica as a person or a journalist."
