Northern Ireland Political Leader to Speak?

This a follow-up to this post.

The news around town is that the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick have invited Mark Durkan, leader of Northern Ireland's Social Democratic and Labour Party to speak at the annual dinner. I believe that the SDLP aren't pro-abortion.

But then again neither is Little Bobby Casey.

FYI: abortion is legal in Northern Ireland with strong restrictions.
and abortion is ILLEGAL in the Republic of Ireland.

I have an email in to Mr. Durkan to see if he has indeed accepted the supposed invitation. I will keep you posted as the news continues.

Call me Irish but that is kinda a big no no to have a Northern Irishman at a Catholic Feast day.

Nah. He's a Catholic Nationalist.
