That's an utterly contemptible article, full of hear-say and insinuation about Stokes that can barely be called journalism, and certainly offers no benefit or genuine insight to anyone reading it.

The only demonstrable fact about him is that one of his long term friends was a widely understood to be a notoriously unpleasant person.

Edit : To be clear I'm not denying that Anthony Stokes is, in all likelihood, a real nasty piece of work.  Just saying that is a terrible piece of journalism.

in the original irish times article it's quite clear he was at the fundraiser.
"The revolution will inevitably awaken in the British working class the deepest passions which have been diverted along artificial channels with the aid of football."
