Subject: RE: The Mero (explanation wanted)
Sorry about the "digging match". I took it to be a fist fight, but I was foolish enough to try and look it up, which made me settle on equivalent of "digging stick". I know I should trust my understanding, but sometimes I don't.
Thanks for the explanation of "Stater". I had taken to be the split of Ireland to be the most important bit, because they did managed to work out the bit about the level of independence before I was born, but not the problem of the two Irelands.
Dublin, well I know the Vikings were there once, and that it's the capital of the Irish Republic now, but that's about it. Oh, and there's a number of songs about it. (-:
But I've never been there. Still, who knows what may happen another year.
