Enda kenny attended the memorial service in Enniskilen at the weekend. Why has he never attended any of the events to remember the Civil Rights marchers murdered in Derry?


Is he continuing the hierarchy of victims right through to the Graveyard?

Why Enniskillen? Is it love a Fermanagh UVF man week? Why not Larne or London? Surely he would not play politics on such a solemn occasion (November 11th is the feast day of St Martin of Tours. Does he have to wear a poppy in heaven too?)

Would you prefer if he hadn't gone?
I've nothing against him going to Enniskillen. I don't, however, think that the Irish Government should buy into the whole British Poppy Day nonsense. It sentimentalizes warmongering. Plus, 'outreach' nearly always seems to involve Irish nationalists making gestures of respect for the benefit of unionists. I don't see much outreach going in the other direction.

Why is this thread not in the NI forum - is this a new escape strategy on the part of the loonies who are normally kept safely confined there?

Oh great. Another whining republican thread about something to do with remembrance sunday. When will the fringe republicans (not all republicans, the fringe ones) realise they don't speak for Ireland?

Gordon Wilson - a man of forgiveness - a quality sadly lacking in this country.

His lost his daughter Marie, a young nurse, in the bombing in Enniskillen and he said he felt no bitterness for the people responsible and said he prayed for them.
