What took Jimmy Deenihan so long?

Poll topping Fine Gael TD from Listowel Jimmy Deenihan has finally broken his silence on the Listowel sex assault case.

Today’s Irish Times reports Mr. Deenihan saying ‘Listowel was not the kind of town that would allow a woman to be ostracised.’

“Listowel is a caring, compassionate town. This girl will not be ostracised. She will get every support possible,� he said.

Pity he didn’t say something last week or over the weekend. It took local councillors a few days before they said anything and now it’s to defend the ‘good name of the town’ with a nod to the survivor but some would say it’s not a big nod as there are votes to be minded.
