Mary Lou Mc Donald claims that the "IRA doesn't exist". Thank God and all the Holy Saints for that - we can all now sleep soundly. Her pronouncement was uttered with such unblinking conviction that it's hard not to take her at her word, so let us all do just that.

She might wish to answer when they stopped existing, just to put our minds further at rest. After all, it wouldn't do to have the Boys of the Old Brigade sniffing around the Cabinet table anytime soon tainting all those shiny new TDs.
