Did they have that ridiculous bonfire in Derry this year, or have they wised up?

There was one in the Fountain estate in July, and it is being rebuilt for the Apprentice Boys march. It is about 20 paces from terraced houses and right in front of a firestation. I didn't see any nationalist bonfires.

Omagh CBS A level history - full on Irish History  -1900- 1970!

By Theresa by any chance?

There was some talk if a film about the Fenian rescue, it could be good plot for a movie.
