best of luck with this rally
we Irish should always remember the sacrifices those men made and we should realise too that they did'nt take that action for what we have today - a bolixed state and ex-republicans running the six counties for the brits.

Hi HMS !
And I went to a PSF website where I read a statement from a Westminster-funded Six County political administrator in which he called those who continue to oppose the British political and military presence "traitors" .
But I don't lay the blame for that at the door of the hunger-strikers.

Hi Realist !
If ONLY the political and military leadership in Westminster were better educated - millions of people in the 56 countries in which "the sun never set" would not have died as they did.
Victims of British imperialism.

Thanks!

Sharon.

"22 Irish men died on hunger strike in their fight for Irish Freedom"

Poor guys.

A bit like suicide bombers.

If ONLY they were better educated............ they would be alive now.

Victims of SF fanaticism.

You could at least spell Terence McSwiney and Denis Barry's names properly.
