The only time I've heard it talked about much since I've been here was when Roy Keane got sent home from the World Cup and some utter quims were comparing it to Michael Collins being assassinated.

I wish I was joking.

I read a very funny story about Dev and Michael Collins the other day. It's in the bloke from the Rubber Bandits (Horse Outside)'s book which is a hoot.

According to the latest polls, your two main parties are again Fianna Fail and Fine Gael. "Normal" service has been resumed.

Excellent quote from the autobiography "Well-Remembered Days" sums it up well:

Quote:
Already the 1914-1918 war was raging in Europe and many Irishmen had gone to "The Front", a pub on the quays, where they would discuss the latest news from the battlefields and argue about the rights and wrongs of volunteering for service.
