Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not actually trying to get at Hugh Duffy. My interest is in why the Irish Independent (the largest circulation Irish daily) chose to publish and highlight his letter. Clearly they like to try and stir things up and generate some controversy. Historically they used to support Fine Gael and its predecessor, Cumannn na Gael, which was associated with the quasi fascist Blueshirts in the 1930's who were led by a General Eoin O'Duffy. I wonder is he a relation?

Pandering to the Catholic right is part of their thing... making them uncomfortable by association with the British Tory Brexiteer right is part of mine...
