The comments of two of our leading media commentators, Eamonn McCann in the Irish Times last week, and Justine McCarthy, in the Sunday Times more recently, about the Gathering event at Kilteevan, which was attended by the CIA chief, John Brennan, along with his 93-year-old father and a brother, were very insulting to both the
