A Sligo Leitrim Sinn Fein TD claims that he is not overly worried about his safety after receiving a death threats for speaking out against right-wing anti-immigrant hate speech.
Spokesperson on Justice & Equality Martin Kenny has received what he describes as several “racist” messages in recent days after voicing concerns about what he believes is a ‘far-right’ influence in debates over plans to accommodate asylum seekers in Ballinamore in Leitrim.
The Sinn Fein TD reported to Gardai a message he received this week which referred to him as a “traitor” and claimed that the Leitrim politician would be “executed.”
Speaking within the last hour to Ocean FM News Deputy Kenny said he has received a lot of racist and sinister communications:
Speaking in the Dail, he criticised Fine Gael after he failed to get a commitment from the Tánaiste, to challenge racism and fascist ideas that occurs within the Fine Gael Party.
