Dan Keding Man From the R.U.C. (31) RE: MAN FROM THE R.U.C. 18 Nov 98


Freinds, It's easy to get emotional about the Troubles. My father's people came over from Ireland and I heard stories as a boy from all sorts of folks. But I was in Northern Ireland this summer and was suppose to perform at a storytelling festival in Omagh. The festival was called off after the bombing but I was there at the memorial service and I saw the coming together that grief brings. I also saw how the RUC carried the wounded and dying to buses and ambulances after the bomb went off and saw the tears running down their faces. Oddly enough they never asked the people they carried what religion they were or how they voted. Perhaps the end is in sight.

Dan
