Jimmy C BS: I.R.A. Decommissioning (124* d) RE: BS: I.R.A. Decommissioning 08 Oct 05

Of course we also had a thing often referred to as a famine, as did the rest of Europe which you bastards seem to forget.

I agree, it did affect the rest of Europe, but their goivernments had the decency to make sure their people were fed befor thay EXPOTED FOOD>

1846 - this is a real beauty - Despite the famine, large quantities of grain are exported to pay rents of absentee landlords, - how does that little items grab you ?. With incredible surprise as what was commonly referred to as the great hunger did not manifest itself until 1847 and lasted until 1851.

During which time many Irish who stayed in the country had to build walls just to get food, walls that were unnecessary and useless, One of which can be seen on the Mourne Mountains today. Asking starving people to work before they qualiofied for relief was stupid. There are also roads going nowhere ?

1848 - John Mitchell begins publishing the rebel newspaper : United Irishman". Was this paper banned, if that was when he started, when did he ever complete his task?
The United Irishman is still being published and issued, in some places under a dofferent name but it is still in circulation.

My response was to indicate that although there were no large scale interuptions of tranquility, the notion and dream of a united Ireland still lived on, as long as we have even 2 people to keep the dream alive it will never die.

Resorting to calling us bastards by the way says a lot about your thoughts on the Irish.
