A week may be a long time in politics but 25 years is even longer
I caught a snippet of Eamon Gilmore being interviewed on RTE radio on Sunday. At one point he was questioned about the possibly illegal activities of the Workers Party, of which he was a member at one time.
His answer. "That was a long time ago, twenty five years, a quarter of a century".
Funny, I don't remember that being accepted as an excuse when he was attacking the Catholic Church over child abuse, and in particular Cardinal Brady for his actions back in 1975 - some thirty-eight years ago.
