I wasn't on the last Dublin Demo against the war so I don't know about the
Sinn Fein turn out.

The point I was trying to make was that Sinn Fein usually have a large
presence on any demonstration, with banners from their cumann etc. It was
noticable that this wasn't the case in Shannon which leads me to conclude
that either they don't see the anti war campaign as a priority or they are
keeping a low key so as not to offend their US supporters.
