Anonymous kills website for Fine Gael, Irish opposition party

Hackers have compromised the Irish (pro EU) party Fine Gael's website, leaving a message claiming to be from Anonymous.
Fine Gael said it was working on restoring the site after it was "professionally hacked" on 9 January, leading to personal data on around 2,000 supporters reportedly being lost.
"The website will be offline while we follow-up with the appropriate authorities to resolve the matter," a message on the party's site read.
The initial defacement on the website called for free speech to be respected.
"Nothing is safe, you put your faith in this political party and they take no measures to protect you," it reportedly read.
"They offer you free speech yet they censor your voice. Wake up!"

Fine Gael website still down tonight, 4+ days later...
