Sinn Fein Rejects Sinead.

Sinn Féin have told Sinéad O’Connor that she would be more useful “working alongside” them, while rejecting her application for membership, according to the singer.

Sinead,who applied to join the party in October, had only last week publicly stated that she had her “fingers crossed” that the party would accept her, and that she would be meeting them in due course.

That meeting took place with party representatives Sinead Ni Bhroin and Ken O’Connell, who, according to Sinead persuaded her that she would be “bored shitless”, that the ending of partition (which the singer had called for) was a “taboo subject” that “Sinn Fein…have to play down the fact that its anywhere on theirs”.

“It was said being a member would limit… freedom of speech”, the singer continued; adding that she thought Sinn Fein could “risk being braver” in relation to speaking about the ending of partition.


Welcome to a collection of blogs from women who contribute with one aim - simply to write honestly. None of these women shy away from controversy, believing that subjects should be tackled head on, explored, and in some cases even enjoyed. We welcome contributions from anyone who feels they have something to say. Email :
