The case was brought by Alan Lennon who was overlooked for the post of chairman of NI Water. 

The tribunal judgement found convicted terrorist Murphy’s evidence “implausible and lacking credibility”. 

The Sinn Fein man refused to apologise to Mr Lennon for his sectarian discrimination and instead doubled down on his hate filled decision to overlook Mr Lennon based solely on his Protestant background. 

In March 2011 the then Sinn Fein Minister instead appointment a Catholic as chairman, Sean Hogan ahead of four Protestants shortlisted after interview. 

The tribunal judgement made clear that , Mr Hogan was selected because “he was not from a Protestant background and because he was known to the minister and his (then Sinn Fein) ministerial colleagues”, Michelle Gildernew and Caitriona Ruane, who were consulted about the appointment.

The astonishing discrimination shines a light on the sectarian hatred at the heart of Sinn Fein. 

Will Sinn Fein stand up against the sort of sectarianism that disadvantaged Mr Lennon?

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
