Not to mention those who were rounded up and sold as slaves to the West Indies after the "democratic" hero Cromwell had finished here.There were 18 major famines in ALL of Europe between 1720 and 1860. Nine of them in Ireland. Half a million Irish people were exterminated in the 1720 genocide alone. A million were exterminated in the 1840s genocide, and the population was halved by exile. Yes, we had it pretty good all right.
:roll:But of course Schombergs ancestors would have had a completely different life, being of the Protestant Assendency. His problem now is not that Protestants are really treated badly but gone are the days that the Assendency are bowed to and control us mere peasants...celebrating Orange facism as if it were some sort of cultural carnival you'd find in Rio.
The Irish were the slave drivers of many British victims way before Cromwell. Dubliners were not averse from selling their fellow Irish to slavery either. There were Irish slaves as far away as Persia.Care to explain that one? The Irish deserved it, is that what you're saying?
I don't think Cowen would say any such thing. In Ireland the NI issue is considered closed. Of course it would be perfectly legitimate for him to state an aspiration to a United Ireland.Balderdash
Are you really saying if Cowen says he is working for a United Ireland that he is strengthening loyalist paramilitaries ?
To be fair I could have swore it was you who wrote on a thread ages ago about harking back to the days of the landed gentry and the shame that they were parted from their huge estates.:roll:
The "ascendancy"? puh-lease :lol:
I wish we were! Gawd, how great it would be to come from some money loaded family, servents, horses and all that malarkey....
Honest to God, these savage myths and lies. dangerous fenian propaganda that we were all living the highlife :lol: what pathetic idiocy. Honestly, I feel sorry for you wallowing in yer historical self pity and MOPEry. must be some fkcuing boring and sad life. Newsflash for ya dummie - my protestant family were all small, poor policemen or small (like tiny) farmers. and awkwardly enough for you my papist ancestors were all middle class merchants, others were teachers or craftsmen and others were soldiers. This must feel like opposite day for your tiny mind?
I bet yer single??? :lol:
