Seems there has been a split in Sinn Fein in Kildare with Sinn Feins 2011 Kildare South candidate Jason Turner leaving the party to found “Tús Nua -New Beginnings”.Turner claims “eight of his local Cumman left” with him.
Theres a small bit about it here on the Leinster Leader site.
Not sure if it is an ideological split or not, although in another interview in the Kildare Nationalist Turner states …
“When I was in Sinn Fein a lot of the work we were doing was being sent down from head office in Dublin.”
The article also notes that Turner “had wanted to take part in demonstartions and other activities.” Interestingly enough when asked about the new groups political aims it emerges that they
“support those opposed to the household charge”
You’d wonder was a command sent from on high to not get involved in the campaign Against The Household and Water Charges?… and was it that which prompted the split?
