I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong and since no one has yet mentioned Bernadette Devlin re- pre-Bloody Sunday here go's.

Bernadett was a Uni student who attracted media attention by highlighting inequalities between the Catholic and Protestant population in Northern Ireland around 1950-60's ?.

Primarily this focused on the right to vote. EG Catholics had no rights (no vote) where as Protestants did and had two votes if they owned a business.
For thoes who like the high life with culture thrown in, Kildare has it all from two race cources (Curragh and Punchestown) miles of golf cources, not forgetting the K Club & the Curragh military camp.

It's the second best country in the world.

The rank structure goes like this

1. Australia
2. Ireland
Need I go on.

But seriously I love Ireland. I'm 3/4 Irish, hence my love of rugby and beer. My family is from County Downe in the North.

There is also the Royal Irish Regiment. This was formed back in 1992 when they merged the UDR which is made up of guys from the North and the Royal Irish Rangers which was made up of guys from the South, North and the mainland. So there are citizens of Eire serving in the British Army.

And if i remember correctly, wasn't there an airbase used by the British in Eire, in Cork i think. Wasn't this where the plane that found the Bismark was based.

Topic: yes i love ireland

i am of Irish heritage and I dont know much about my ancestors country. it makes me sad. I someday hope to go there and see the whole country, the places where my ancestors lived and all that. I have seen pictures of Ireland though and I think that it is a wonderful looking country. my family came over here to america during the potatoe famine and sometimes I whish they would have stayed there. I think it would be cool to live in Ireland. tis an awsome country
