Sinn Fein Cllr plagiarises Fine Gael TD’s press release.

Some people will tell you that in todays modern cynical age of the internet – ‘originality is just plagiarism gone unnoticed’.

One can only presume that member of Wicklow county council and Bray town councillor, Sinn Fein’s, John Brady, was hoping that his brilliance was so original no one would notice. Ireland has a small but highly dedicated community of political anorak and this kind of originality was never going to go unnoticed.

The press release in question is about the upgrade to the N11 motorway, which winds its way through county Wicklow. As is usual when a jobs and public interest story of this size happens in a constituency, you will see a number of press releases from various politicians about said project.

Step forward Andrew Doyle one of three Fine Gael TD’s for Wicklow/East Carlow. Andrew issued this PRESS RELEASE about the motorway upgrade on Tuesday just before lunch time.

Which included…..


Later that night Cllr Brady issued his PRESS RELEASE

Which included….



It didn’t end there though……

From Andrew


From Brady’s press release……


It’s not the plagiarism of a thesis, but if Cllr Brady cannot be trusted to issue a bog standard political press release, what can you trust him with ?

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery….. It usually is, but in this case it’s certainly not, especially when you can’t even copy and paste properly……

    This piece is hilarious! Can you not see that both of them copied and pasted the county-council-speak from the original press release? You are really scraping the barrel for a story is you think that’s worth covering. Get a life.

    • Paul Duggan says:

      Sorry Mary I spoke to the person who wrote original piece for Andrew and he confirmed to me that those were his phrases that were used.
      Get a life yourself.
