    In fairness P,ie compared to the juvenile boards.ie has much better posters and I'll be accused of ass kissing, but P.ie is much more fairly moderated. The boards.ie History forum is ' moderated ' by a username called jonniebgood1 who is in fact just a sock puppet of one of the main childish clowns oscarBravo allegedly administrating the forum and hence like the political section a joke. P.ie warts and all beats b.ie any day.

    Can nothing be done to restrain such stuff?

    I was looking forward to Beetlejuice 2. Now you've come close to spoiling it for me.

    On the other hand, I was looking for a competent blacksmith ...

    "Quick, let's tap to the critical and popular acclaim of 'Birdman', Michael Keaton don't dear turn us down and let someone else play the iconic character!"

    Funnily enough, the Birdman film's alternate title "The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance" comes heavily into the play as regards the movie project and mah personal feels.

    (no, it's not out of place in history forum, that much heavily they are playing the nostalgia angle here)

    Hi!

    Could anyone recommend a book or maybe a reading list which deals with Irish history or even Irish history from 1600 onwards from a post-colonial perspective?

    RF Foster seems slightly biased towards the colonizers pov but I am also not looking for anything that's completely nationalist propaganda either.

    Also what do ppl think is the most balanced TV series History of Ireland. I'm watching Kee's History of Ireland right now. I found the series Fergal Keane made for BBC NI annoying, very diminishing of the Gaelic experience of dispossesion etc...
