oath to IRA rules him out under Constitution When I became a member of An Garda Siochana in 1971 I took an oath of allegiance to this State to uphold its Constitution and laws.
The oath was to practise my work without fear, favour, malice or ill will, that I would not join any political party or secret society whatsoever. I did that, and I am proud of all the colleagues who went before me, and who came after me, for being steadfast in the face of all things that were thrown before us. That is the very louis vuitton alma hot pink reason that a problem arises for me with Sinn Fein presidential candidate Martin McGuinness. When Mr McGuinness states that he became a member of the Irish Republican Army, he too took an oath of allegiance to that force, which at the time was a proscribed organisation in this State. It still remains louis vuitton shoes outlet so. Martin McGuinness took an oath of of allegiance to the contents of what the IRA call 'The Green Book'. This document refers to the Dail, the louis vuitton agenda filler Defence Forces and the Garda Siochana as "domestic collaborators". Martin McGuinness believes, as do all louis vuitton neverfull tamanho m his IRA associates, that he is a direct heir to the pre 1921 Treaty assemblies. The oath he swore denounces the existence of our State and Constitution. He has been asked about this and, as usual, he gave an evasive reply. He said it was all so long ago he could not remember what was in the oath he swore to the IRA.
That may be so, but this is a truth he cannot avoid: if he swore allegiance to the IRA, he swore opposition to our Constitution. If he swore opposition to our Constitution, he cannot be president unless he forswears his IRA oath. Forswearing an oath to the IRA would not be something he would be likely to have forgotten if he ever did.
