The Tyrone MP continued to maintain that he didn’t realise the connection before he posted the video on Twitter.

There has been support for Barry McElduff from Tipperary members of Sinn Fein.

Speaking on Tipp Today, Carrick on Suir Sinn Fein Councillor David Dunne said that if the DUP leader Arlene Foster took Sinn Feins example, then the Northern Assembley would be up and running.
