SIR – Wouldn’t you think Gerry Adams should be the last man in Ireland to criticise Enda Kenny’s flight of fancy about having to get the army in to protect the banks and the ATM facilities if the economic crash ‘got out of hand’?

Instead, the Provisional Sinn Fein leader is laughing all the way to the bank with being to the fore in his criticism of Enda – insisting such a thing could never have happened. This is guff from Gerry, when armed troops and gardai at our banks became a regular feature of Irish life when his comrades in the military wing of the Provisional ‘movement’ made robbing banks a major feature in their ‘fight for Irish freedom’.

Perhaps Mr Adams is unfamiliar with the term: ‘Oops, sorry, I think I misspoke

just now’? It certainly applies to him.
