More evidence that you're a plastic Republican.
Do you know the words to The Billy boys?

Mad Duffs I take your silence as a no.

You are only an armchair loyalist.

...as a matter of interest Rox, do you consider Michael Collins, Rom Barry, Dan Breen et al as "murderous lunatics"..?

No, they didn't plant bombs in places so as to cause the maximum loss of life to civilians and they didn't trarget defenceless women like Jean McConville.

Atrocities like Enniskillen are burned into the memories of people who can remember that far back, an act of pure evil the like of which I certain there was no parallel in the era of the men that you mention, at least not on the Irish side anyway.

..well Rox, those are fair and agreed points, but the war such as it is was fought on quite different terms 69 onwards, Barry many times spoke about his hatred of taking the war to the 'mainland'...but we can't forget Rox that he too like his companions was judgedly very harshly in his day...the passing of close to a century can make heroes out of people who were then called murderers for sure...

My own chief gripe as you know Rox is/was the small/none achievements of glorious liberty from Colonial fetters is/was only to hand them over the RCC who vehemently opposed the rebellion, I am a Republican by birth and innate compulsion but would loathe to think that I fought for a freedom that did not enjoy as a consequence of that struggle,long before our previous colonialists did that of our Universal Health Care and a Free Education...two principal motivators for any man or woman to fight for..yet still Ireland has not realised that dream moreover it's never talked about much...

As a Scot on my Irish visits/stay(s) in Eire with my fella Celts/Gaels it galls me that I can go to any Dr and grieves me
to know my UK medical card shown and not pay a red cent, but a single Euro for any number of prescriptions(Unique ly free even in the UK in Scotland)...this without any Insurance, it's a scandal in a new Republic, I have three grown up brats, all went and did whatever at University in principal didn't cost us my late wife and I nothing(of course that is not quite the truth but we had no need for outrageous borrowing)but again uniquely free in the UK Scotland only.

Rox, when a nation frees itself from the fetters of Religion and in Ireland's case occupation as well it can start to make changes that benefits its people and win admiration within and without borders.

....Connolly, If you remove the English army tomorrow and hoist the green flag over Dublin Castle, unless you set about the organization of the Socialist Republic your efforts would be in vain. England would still rule you. She would rule you through her capitalists, through her landlords, through her financiers, through the whole array of commercial and individualist institutions she has planted in this country and watered with the tears of our mothers and the blood of our martyrs.

Do you get my drift Rox, now, not a poor man in fiscal terms thank goodness though brought up in benign poverty with healthcare and a formidable education....it's the least any newborn in any civilised world can expect to be given the chance eh.

Little point of grim war/rebellion unless it improves the state of the people's welfare.

Sinn Féin members were warned of 'disciplinary action' for talking to media without approval

"I am therefore issuing a further directive, with immediate effect, that party members are not to discuss internal party matters on any media platform.
Party members are instructed not to engage in any direct or indirect contact or correspondence with any journalist or media outlet in relation to internal party matters.
All party members in Dublin North West should only have contact with the local or regional media on the basis of press office approval.
Any breach of this directive will be subject to disciplinary action."

Members of all parties need lessons on social media, i would say sf members can get wound up easily and instead of ignoring it, they take the bait,

You'd really want to go back to school and take history again. Dresden deliberately fire bombed knowing hundreds of thousands would be killed , Hiroshima , Nagasaki and many hundreds of cities all over the world the same. You should take time to read a chronology of events from 1966 until 1969 and see what really happened to cause the Troubles in NI. Happy reading.
