Bloody sunday if people want to straighten facts out....................british shouldn't of gone in that way but like so many other things what evidence we had soon decided to take a wonder and "disappear"...........

When bloody sunday kicked off two para's were dragged out of their car (off duty para's) taken to a field and shot....................this was filmed, obv not let out for public reasons but teh british military do use that video footage for certain things so i can say i have seen it and it was awful...............

===============================================

well coming from manchester we were always told to be weary of Irish ppl snooping about....but its not been like that for a while...

Being a Man Utd fan and living qute close to Old Trafford we see a lot of Irish...but cant understand what the their sayin lol

But my dad is in contact/going over there all the time with work and he says there all right

Ive never had any prob's with them but some people who were involved in the Arndale bombing a few years ago wouldnt agree

I dont know how many times I've told them that the whole of Ireland isnt the IRA

Actually I've just been looking at a web-site on this subject and I was wrong. The figure for Irish volunteers from the South during WW2 is over 70,000
.................................................. ............................

Alot of southeners from eire were obv is ww2, alot trained in SAS or nurses etc this was due to money, 14 -15yr olds coimg from ireland to earn money to support families, i know my gran did nd they would do the brave scary jobs due to more money. Even though they have there own army/navy it was never as good pay as to what they would get here.

Just like the whole of Britian isn't UDA, LVF, etc. Pretty easy concept to understand unless they are simply ignoring there are both sides to the problem.
