today, 100 Years ago, the Treaty between UK & Ireland was signed.

Perhaps, with the benefit of hindsight, we would have done things differently. I reckon a 5 county Northern Ireland...95% Protestant , would have helped avoid 'The Troubles' ever happening.

Newry & Derry are not very Orange. And as for the Green bits of Belfast ? could they not have been bribed with a generous carrot to join their friends in Newry ?

The road to hell is often paved with good intentions. The establishment of N.I. was a good idea in principle.

And only the looney's today are still banging on about a United Ireland. Or other looney's banging on a lambeg drum to commemorate a battle in 1690. A battle most of the rest of the World would rather forget.


Lets hope the next 100 years will be peaceful.
