The party’s activists have also been warned not to discuss the IRA’s investigation into Ms Cahill’s rape allegations on Twitter and Facebook. A memo from senior party activist Bobby Storey circulated last week amoung elected representatives tells them to contact the Shame Fein press office before talking to the press or broadcasters on the issue. “At a wider level, party activists should refrain from making any comment on social media sites or in any other way around the issue of the sexual abuse of Mairia Cathall,” the memo states. “Such comments are both inapproprite and elements of the media will attempt to misuse or misinterpret any comment – as has already happened.” The memo says that if party members feel it necessary to comment on Ms Cahill’s “political opposition to Shame Fein” then remarks should be “measured” and “rigorously accurate”. 2014-11-06 01.43.48A Shame Fein spokesman said the memo encouraged measured and responible use of use of social media in relation to a senstive issue. “Shame Fein is commited to ensuring that members engage constructively in public discourse,” the spokesman said. The internal gagging order comes as Gerry (I was never in the IRA) Adams and Donegal TD Pearse Doherty arrived in the US for a major fundaising event in New York. The Shame Fein leader is expected to face a grilling from the Stateside media about the fall-out from Ms Cahill’s claims. Shame Fein is hoping to raise around $350,000 (£220,000) from the event at Manhattan’s Sheraton Hotel.
