"If it was a war under international rules, I could not see the ra lasting two or three months. RAF would have wasted South Armagh in a afternoon."

Are you sorry that the RAF did not "waste" South Armagh in an afternoon?

"Anyway, the Touting, lack of donkeys, handlers. tip offs and paranoia it created amongst the "families" ran them to sign up to the good Friday treaty."

How do you KNOW what led to the IRA ceasefire? I suggest that the ceasefire was brought about by the UK government taking strong action to reduce Prod tyranny. In 1989, it introduced effective legislation to protect Catholics from job discrimination. In late 1992, it granted 100% funding to Catholic schools - 61 years after that had been granted to Protestant schools. After that, there was no longer enough anger in the Catholic population to sustain the IRA campaign. We still have plenty of grievances - more than enough to justify a continued campaign against the Prods but not enough to motivate such a campaign.

Let Northern Ireland be a far off land about which you know little, understand less and care nothing.


Will you be emigrating after Re-unification - or will you be staying ?
Dougal would be heart-broken if you would emigrate.

So-called northern Ireland is counties Derry, Down, Armagh, Antrim, Fermanagh and Tyrone - which are in Ireland.

Loaded down cars all over the city that day and every day, did the car have bomb wrote on the side,? Terrorests robbing banks and murdering children are just crimbo's.
PS. Only ones calling it a war where the bar stool rebs.

That's not what the British gov said just last week on Hawks and Doves (RTE) - the brit gov admitted that it could not beat the Irish Republican Army, and had to sue for peace.

Not much from Listowel or any of the other West Brit apologists on how THEY think funerals should be arranged. They like to dish it out but vanish when exposed.

The people of what is now Eire were not interested in those counties when they abandoned the Catholics of those counties to Prod tyranny. Nor were they interested when the Prods burned Bombay street. Nor did they show much interest when Prods were murdering Catholics.
