The Funeral Murders on BBC2 was totally compelling. Remember the time well and must bring back some memories for MR2 etc from the area.

Recorded it will watch it tomorrow, half expecting to see my face.. so soon after Stone! The place was on edge..
I'll look out for you. Did you have hair in 1988?  ;D

Flowing locks!

 I remember standing at the roundabout at Kennedy way for the Stone carnage and one of the news team came up to us and were asking why are there so many people out to mourne these IRA men and woman, as a 16 year old your were mainly curious to see if something would kick off, as they generally did at these funerals, but I remember saying that people are out to show respect for these fallen volunteers or words to that effect (i'd no political views growing up despite the day to day), the view of a young teenager i suppose growing up in a place that during those times was relentless, shootings and bombs going off, riots on plenty occasions following various incidents..

Bizzare times. The Michael Stone is the one that sticks out, watching the ground blow up was almost unreal, hearing the cracks of Stone's gun go off and watching the fellas (including my older brother) chase after him, madness

I took a half day off work, to go to the funerals.  Taxis had been told to stop, so got to Milltown just as the 3 hearses arrived. All kicked off shortly afterwards. Frightened the feckin shit out of me, I can tell ya.

Don't think I am set up for PMs! Was only there at start of holiday & v end. Was mainly in Sorrento. Stayed in Una Hotel, which is at top of a big square nr Central railway out for the pickpockets. That area was like a construction site, as they are doing work on the metro system. It was pissing rain one day so we did an underground tour of the old subterranean water system, which was good. Did Pompeii, Amalfi coast & Capri, but all out of Sorrento. Herculaneum didn't look like it was too far out of Naples either. Didn't go far at night in Naples.....dodgy place during the day even lol. At least 1 Irish bar in Sorrento that I was in.

I will temporarily assume ordinariness

Hark at the son of god. Romans stringing you up on 30 March, then? Don't bother with the rising from the dead bit on the Sunday though.

Oh f**k. Willie Frazer is going to go daft

Willie Frazer was already daft.

He likes the Ulster Scots, so he's a wee dafty.

John Mahoney? Did he not play for Stoke City?

Could you not just piss off instead?

Dr. Goebbels Interfering allows the Catholic church to get away with it, but supports these vigilantes. He is all over the place in his "thinking". A complete idiot, if ever there was one.

He said earlier he borrowed them, from the gym. But why go to the bother, especially now that he's paid both the fine & the replacement costs of a new what was it all about then? Maybe Marylou  & Michelle exercised  their President elect & Vice President elect authority lol.

NI fans shouldn't be allowed in the Aviva. They'll wreck the place.

Shouldn't be allowed out, full stop.

"A  Night In November" will need to get dusted down.

Look at who created the thread & then it'll make sense. He's the vatican's equivalent of Goebbels....self-appointed, of course, as well as self-important.

A total idiot. Gone now are the chances of any real discussion at the six county government headquarters.

Who would have guessed that a loaf of bread & a set of bolt cutters would be so decisive in the history of mankind?

Quite a catch, I'd say.
