Thread Name: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us
Subject: RE: BS: What have the Irish ever done for us
I am quite aware of the problems in the South as well as in the North of Ireland. I've also expressed the opinion that if the Celtic Tiger continues to roar as it has, the problem of the Six Counties will be solved by purchase, not guns.

My own country, the United States, has had its share in the Troubles, too.

I'd like to see everyone let go of their hate and give peace a chance.

Mad Ma, I respect the Irish and find the stereotypical picture of the Irish absurd. I got a huge laugh out of being in Dublin on St. Patrick's Day, 1978, with a bunch of Knights of Columbus. Most of them seemed to think that it was going to be a day of drunken revelry...after church, after the parade, they discovered WHEN the pubs closed.
