Truce Holds


This afternoon.

Mansion House, Dublin 2.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin accompanied by Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and the Lord Mayor of Dublin Alison Gilliland visit a display of items to mark the 100th anniversary of talks that would lead to the end of the War of Independence, including a typescript memorandum (above) with the proposed terms that came into effect on 11 July 1921.

What the UN and EU flags are doing there – other than demonstrating a dependence – is anyone’s guess.

    The UN flag is there to represent the Defence Forces overseas involvement as is the EU flag for their involment in the EU battlegroup as well as service in Kosovo and Bosnia.

      Hmmmm. We agree with Bodger…what are they doing there? Neither combatant were a member of either as neither the organisation or union existed in 1921.

      If anyone here can explain this, please do. Otherwise we’ll go to Ferriter.

        Totally. Just a photocall.

        Just like the G7 last month. Where world leaders stood apart and bumped elbows for the camera.

        And hugged each other 10 mins later as they filled themselves full of booze and finger food.

        Served to them by masked faceless serfs.

    Definite upgrade of a Lord Mayor anyway.
    And I’d say the leak and mehole eyes were burning seeing those items produced by real Irishmen and patriots. A million kilometres from what those two gombeens are.

      Labour supporter? Or is it that Ms Gilliland isn’t one of those slitty eyes furrdin types?
