I seem to remember seeing a Tv clip recently where Gusty Spence made a similar apology on behalf of the UVF .I'm not sure when it took place, I only caught the end of it.
I'm from N.Ireland, I'm a nationalist and my Godfather was shot dead by the Provos, now there's a scenario for you. Having said that I believe that this is a positive move by the IRA and another step down the road toward peace. Its been a long road and one with many twists and turns and we can't really see the end of it but we're getting there.
In answer to Big Mick's question, no I never thought I'd see the day where we were this close to what some people call normal life and I pray to God that it continues. Den
