    There would be a point in logical discussion, but I can see several barriers to that.

    Michael McGrath started as a journalist with the original Kilkenny Journal in 1964 after he left school in the CBS , Kilkenny, with seven honours. He was an Executive Officer then for a while in the Department of Local Government ( now Environment), Custom House, Dublin, but left the Civil Service to train as a professional photographer with Oliver, Photographer, High Street studio, Kilkenny. Photographer Oliver Dunphy is still alive, his daughter Maria has taken over the studio . Oliver will confirm that as McGrath and he remain firm friends and fellow photographers over a half a century now. The lies about McGrath here are really ugly! But he does have a lot of hatred and personal spite against him in Kilkenny, particularly from incumbent politicians and their henchmen. He is in fact a fine professional photographer to this day, having his photos published nationally.
    McGrath's dad was Ambulance Controller at St. Luke's Hospital, Kilkenny, he comes from a long standing respected Kilkenny family.
    McGrath then joined the Kilkenny office of the Munster Express as both journalist and Press Photographer. He also worked for the Kilkenny Standard. He is totally independent of all political parties and a member of none. From reading the Kilkenny Journal online that he publishes it would appear that he opposes them all, though all candidates were given good space and coverage by McGrath in the recent by-election.

    He has fallen out with the Green party and their local councillor Malcolm Noonan and he makes no apologies for that. Right now he opposes G.I. Joe Malone of Fianna Fail who is to be made mayor of Kilkenny by a mayoral pact on Monday June 22nd next. They have become bitter enemies as well. McGrath opposes all mayoral pacts in the Kilkenny Journal and wants a much more suitable mayor for his native city.

    But he attracts more and more enemies by the day!
    You must know him well? Maybe you should ask him why he posted (maybe he still does) on the vile Stormfront website?

    These make compelling reading:

    We can take some solace from McGrath's latest outporings.
    Peter O'Loughlin himself admits that with his small election team locally he didn't get to knock on or canvass a single door in the constituency, nor did he manage to get a single one of his posters up in Kilkenny city though he managed to get some up in Carlow town and a small area around Thomastown, Callan and Kells.
    (Although I must point out that McGrath here is incorrect, there was at least one poster in Kilkenny city).

    All O'Loughlin could muster up were "three or four people at the most" to help with his campaign.

    O'Loughlin is described as "co-founder" of Identity Ireland. I wonder who the other founder/s is/are. Did the people who voted for him know what he stands for ?

    Given that there were other candidates who were in favour of national control of natural resources, there must be something behind their choice.

    Scapegoating workers from Eastern Europe or from outside Europe who have made their homes in Ireland is the oldest and most dangerous trick in the book. These peoples' racist politics need to be confronted and exposed for the retrogressive and dangerous nonsense they are.

    Ming Flanagan canvassed for another candidate who has left anti-immigrant statements on her Face Book page.

    The lack of clear class politics in the anti water charges campaign and before it in the household charges campaign created a fertile ground for the radical right.

    Is there any party in Ireland that is actively campaigning against racist politics ?

    Are racist politics a significant enough force to warrant campaigning against? Groups like AFA do a lot of work in keeping on top of things, would the publicity from outright denunciation from other political parties serve to aid those they would be opposing?

    Is there an AFA group in Kilkenny ? I think that the work of groups like SOS Racisme in France and similar in Germany has been an important and worthwhile factor in opposing racism.

    Left unchallenged people like O'Louglin and McGrath just spread their poison under a veneer of faux respectability and get worse and worse.

    From reading the comments section of the independent it is unfortunate to see that these scumbags will have a base, probably not enough to win seats at a general election but big enough that they need to be challenged at every opportunity.
    Do the right thing.

    I think you are right. AFA is good at highlighting open racism. But their whole dead-end political "solution" needs to be put on view and refuted.

    Taken from the policy section of their website:

    "Immigration

    Proper border and deportation policies are a bedrock of successful societies

    • Return of full border control from the European Union
    • An end to mass immigration and a return to natural controlled immigration
    • Zero tolerance approach towards demands to alter national life, culture and traditions to accommodate minority held beliefs and cultures.
    • Economic migrants must be capable of supporting themselves when looking for work. If migrants become incapable of supporting themselves they should be offered short term social assistance depending on how long they have worked (if they have worked). Once this ends they should be deported.
    • Only citizens should be able to access full social assistance
    • Immediate deportation of all illegal and criminal migrants

    Mass immigration creates greater competition for scarce employment, puts pressure on social systems and can create cultural division and conflict.
    Identity Ireland aims to return to a system of natural controlled immigration which is practiced by most of the countries of the world as this is the best policy for our society."
