Ireland BS: What have the Irish ever done for us (80* d) RE: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us 21 Nov 02


I tried to stay away but Rapaire with respect you are way off wrt the troubles in Ireland. If you confine it to just the North you have an amazing lack of understanding.

Ever heard of Charles Haughey, the former Taoiseach,who got caught up in the arms to the IRA scandal in 1970, just an example for the point I'm trying to make. We all have to accept our fair share of blame for the troubles in N.Ireland from the leaders to the man on the street north and south of the border.

There is hardly a country in this world were an Irish man has not been involved in some kind of construction,music,literature or other enterprise to the betterment of all. To accept our part of good to the world we have to accept our failings and hiding behind half truths only demeans the great achievements and contributions of others.

I just realised have I stuck up for guest,if so sorry.
