Concluding part last night. Poor Seamus Mallon just couldn't help himself in his bitterness.

It was a warts and all look at GA but there were some good things to take from it overall I thought.

Even his political enemies recognised in GA a very good politician. The priest in Clonard who'd be relatively neutral in politics reckoned him probably one of the best in Europe.

Notable when the various guys were lined up to criticise GA at the end, he was being criticised by ex-IRA as bringing the movement too far to the right. Even Vinny Brown said SF want to share power with RightWing parties - as though that meant they wanted to become Right Wing rather than act as a counter balance in power.

Claimed GA was closely involved in the Gibraltar attempt and it was certainly not a cheerleading program about GA but nary a mention of Loughall that some allege he was up to his oxters in undermining.

Mallon said that Adam has no integrity but we can ignore that opinion the former is "bitter".

Mallon, a political rival who was and continues to be extremely bitter at Sinn Fein overtaking SDLP in the hearts and minds of nationalist voters, claimed that Adams has no integrity. Yet Taoisigh, Prime Ministers, and Presidents all trusted Adams to deliver the republican movement to exclusively peaceful means. Mallon is a mere footnote of norther politics, whereas Adams was hailed far and wide as being a leader and someone who delivered.

But of course we know who's opinion someone like you would put more stock in Roxy

BTW - see the change in size of Bertie Ahern from when he first met GA on the clips last night, and then the recent interview

Would that be the same priest who granted Jarry absolution every day after yet another SF/IRA atrocity?

The month of march 1988 will go down as one of the darkest
months of the troubles, the people of west belfast were demonised following the killing of the two soldiers who drove into the path of the funeral, but such was the fear at the time they genuinely thought it was another loyalist attack,
many see that horrific month as a major turning point,

I wonder where Jarry was whilst the two soldiers were being striped, beaten and murdered.
