O Cuiv as well.

It's basically a FF private party.

Are you one of those idiots who thinks that war should be fought on the Marquess of Queensbury rules with each side given a fair chance? War and ambushes are nasty, brutal affairs and any threat or potential threat has to be eliminated. They were called upon to surrender and the RIC officers took up firing postions.
No, I am not. The object in war is to kill the enemy. But then, this wasn't a war, at least not until afterwards.
Do we really want to glorify the starting of a war?
Even if war is necessary, do we really want to glorify its most nasty and brutal aspects?

The two constables never got to tell us their side of story. When the ambushers said afterwards "they took up firing positions" it indicates one thing; the constables did not fire back.
They would have acted on instinct and dived for cover. At that point, if they had been given 5 minutes to think about their situation, maybe they would have surrendered. Who knows. They weren't given that chance.
Treacy had stated to me that the only way of starting a war was to kill someone, and we wanted to start a war, so we intended to kill some of the police whom we looked upon as the foremost and most important branch of the enemy forces.... The only regret that we had following the ambush was that there were only two policemen in it, instead of the six we had expected

No. The object in war is to win.

In not commemorating it, then the lives of those who died on both sides mean nothing. Very Eoghan Harris/Peter Hart of you.

Really ? Can we expect a minute's silence at the ceremony for the only people who died at Soloheadbeg ?

The gunning down of 2 policemen by 9 attackers...... it was a shameful dirty little action. Why should President Higgins associate himself with it?
Well, he was full of praise for Fidel Castro and he has expressed his admiration of South American governments who brutalise their people, who have brought their countries to their knees with the vast majority living in poverty. Some of those people are now trying to force their way into America in a convoy, but none of that matters to Higgins the faux gras champagne socialist. Higgins is pathetic effeminate little freak.

All those who fought are dead. You are a Labourite. It is no surprise to see you defending your gombeen in chief.

Who knows why Michael D isn't attending but maybe it's because he's a tad disgusted at the idea of being tainted by association with Dan Breen's well publicised Nazi sympathies during WW2....................but for most of the people yelping for the President's head on this forum, that would be an even better reason to go.:)

Throwing light on Ireland's dark days of censorship

We do need to be grown up about this.

The other newspapers had their problems too and even de Valera's paper, the Irish Press, was denounced by former IRA hero, Dan Breen, in a letter which had itself to be stopped by the censor.

"Breen who was unashamedly pro Nazi, denounced the coverage of war news by the Irish Press from news agencies. "You outdo the British in their lies and are at times more red than Stalin. May God save Ireland from the trash you print. May God save the people and guide them away from the rotten pro British element that your paper panders to,"

Our West Brit President has refused to attend the Soloheadbeg Commemoration on January 21st. No explanation given. The is the same President who eulogised over the wanton slaughter of thousands of Irishmen on the Western Front in the cause of British imperialism. No doubt Higgins will get a pat on the back from the Brits for this like the good dog he is.
WTF did you expect, Higgins is a gormless PC hound afraid to upset his own shadow. Cretin.

Very poor show from the President, if this is the case. As TruthInTheNews said, Soloheadbeg was a seminal moment in our history, that the President might not be there is bizarre, to put it charitably.

If Charlie Flanagan is going, that is some sort of cosmic joke, but at least he is doing his duty. It will be interesting to see if he can shove down his natural feelings on the matter for a few hours and not embarrass the nation altogether.
Not a chance, Flanagan is the biggest West Brit in FG and that's amongst some very stiff opposition.

I'd applaud anyone with the decency not to glorify a murdering thug like Breen in particular.
He didn't have to kill the two RIC men but chose to do so, almost identical to the Adare killing of Gerry Mc Cabe, by scumbags who practically no one glorifies (and rightfully so)
A nasty POS who history has been excessively kind to, and whose later life Hitler and Nazi infatuation has been mostly conveniently buried
No surprise to me that he was a huge fascist admirer. The post civil war period when he wasn't allowed stick a bullet in anyone who he disagreed with, must have been hugely frustrating.

You could at least get the man's name right. It was Jerry McCabe. But then as a member of the schoolteacher Left, you'd probably be happier under British rule. This was the Irish war of Independence.

Thank you for correcting Mc Cabe, I mixed him up with his colleague Ben O' Sullivan who miraculously survived the murdering scum's attack

Should our President attend an annual Adare commemoration too, to the brave boys who attacked an occupied garda car with AK47s, in an operation like Soloheadbeg, that was also unsanctioned by the IRA?

Pearse Mc Auley was a Breen doppelganger, a violent thug who never accepted the mundaneness of peacetime and not be allowed beat up and murder people for sport.
