I've been told that the Irish Ambassador to the Mainland, Adrian O'Neill, laid a wreath at the Cenotaph and was proudly wearing his Shamrock Poppy.
Up in Memorial park today m8? Beautiful spot.

i’ve no interest in wearing poppies myself but can understand why some paddies headed off to do what they thought was right.

i’ve no interest in kneecapping lads either but can understand why certain people in ulster felt the need to do certain things.

drucker and duffs are stains on the proc and ireland.

an utter lack of class over the last few weeks using dead men for points scoring. two cheeks of the same arse.

Well of course it is - I mean if folk had to rely on the "cheese eating surrender monkeys" as some brits refer to them, we'd all be speaking German

Many of the soldiers were victimized either physically or economically. Between 1919 and 1922, at least 200 were murdered because they had joined the British army. Economically, the 1919 unemployment ratio of ex-servicemen was 46% in Ireland compared to just 10% in Britain.

MURDERED? because they joined the british army. Do you mean when Michael Collins and his squad had guys shot in their bedrooms?

You're surely not speaking about soldiers being shot while under arms though are you?

Many Irishmen came back and served in the IRA, shooting at former "colleagues".

I suspect you're more of a fan of the likes of returning soldiers like Cruxy Connors though Duffs
