GUEST,DonD Review: Legendary Tommy Makem (26) RE: Review: Legendary Tommy Makem 16 Dec 07

Naive enough to have just clicked 'enter' instead of 'tab'. But naive has nothing to do with the question I asked, nor does my four score years of being an American. I would not think of questioning Ard Macha'a intellegence, parochialism, prejusices or anything else about his character becaus of his nationality, which I do not know. Or his/her gender or race, for that matter. I've been enjoying his/her postings here for years.

I'm glad to leearn that the story I was told is apochryphal, and as a great fan of Irish rebel songs I have no beef with the IRA as such, except to accept that their numbers included those who exceeded the bounds of 'civilized warfare' as did their enemies and every other armed force in history.

I heard the story from someone that I believed to have close connections to Tommy and Liam, but for all I can remember if might have been 'loyalist' terrorists instead. There were enough horror stories going around on both sides to make anything seem true.

I apologize to those offended by my innocent mistake.
