Sinn Féin women have failed basic decency test

As a woman I am disgusted with the way Sinn Féin continue to treat Maíria Cahill and victims of rape and abuse. Unlike Jean McConville these poor victims cannot be tossed into a shallow grave to be forgotten about.

Where do Cllrs Rachael McCarthy, June Murphy, Melissa Mullane, and our female TDs Sandra and Mary-Lou stand in this inhumane treatment of a vulnerable woman?

As someone who voted for a Sinn Féin woman, I am ashamed and cannot begin to comprehend the suffering that Maíria Cahill has been put through at the hands of Sinn Féin and their smear campaign.

In terms of basic decency, Sinn Féin has failed.
