"I spoke at a protest demonstration, in West Belfast after the murder of John Downes in West Belfast. Thousands and thousands and thousands of men and women marched in an awful silence. I explained to those people what a clenched fist salute means. An open palm is divided into four fingers and a thumb. United it becomes a fist, and with or without a freedom-fighter?s weapon, it is more powerful than an open palm because it is united. When I had finished those thousands of old men, old women, young boys, girls, IRA Volunteers and Sinn Fein members stood shoulder to shoulder - with their clenched fists raised to the sky!"
Gerry Adams Sinn F�in President

?And Brian Dooher is down injured. And while he is, I?ll tell ye a little story. I was in Times Square in New York last week, and I was missing the Championship back home. So I approached a newsstand and I said 'I suppose ye wouldn't have ?The Kerryman would ye?' To which the Egyptian behind the counter turned to me and he said 'Do you want the North Kerry edition or the South Kerry edition?'... He had both... So I bought both. And Dooher is back on his feet..."
