Clann Ireland is Matt O'Connor

Clann Ireland is Matt O'Connor most known for Fathers 4 Justice an Irish/English "fathers rights" activist.

I hadn't heard of Clann Ireland but it had a lot of tweets so I reckoned the account had been used under a different name, so I searched and found tweet related to an ice-cream company Federici Gelato as far back as 2013. It was a branding/promotional exercise by media agency Agitator co-run by Matt O'Connor.

He has also tweeted Fathers 4 Justice messages from this account.

He set up another front United4Justice trying to use the langauge of social justice to continue his fathers for Justice campaign.

Russia did not invent anti-European sentiment or invent people appearing to support Trump or some other divisive cause.

So its not a Russia bot.
