Laois People Editorial & Brian Stanley’s Statement re: Tweet
Editorial: The Laois People has seen the tweet in question. It is indefensible to put up such an insensitive and hurtful post like that. This is not nearly good enough from one of our elected politicians. It was plain wrong.

The Laois People has, via email and voicemail, asked Brian Stanley T.D. if he has a statement in response. Here is his statement in full:
“The Tweet referred to the historical record and the repercussions of the two events in the 1920’s and the 1970’s, along with the tragedy of decades of conflict associated with British colonisation of Ireland. I have apologised for the content of the Tweet.”
