Fianna Fáil's justice spokesman has lashed out at Sinn Féin - saying it is a cult and not a political party.

Niall Collins was responding to Sinn Féin's plans to scrap the Special Criminal Court if it is elected.

Fianna Fáil is proposing a new Serious and Organised Crime Unit, which it says would go further than the government's own plans.

But Sinn Féin's plans came in for serious criticism from Mr Collins.

However, Pearse Doherty has rejected comments.

Speaking during a debate on the Pat Kenny Show in Donegal this morning, Sinn Féin's finance spokesman gave this response.
