    And they'd be clueless what he was on about I'm sure. They get into the more critical discussions of Irish pubs.

    If it wasn't for us in America Catholics would still be living under the jackboot of the hated RUC.

    Bold statement there. Are you seriously suggesting that those who remained in Ireland didn't then or don't now contribute more to solving Irish issues domestically?

    Probably referring to fellow barstool rebels in Noraid rather than George Mitchell

    Even during the Troubles one would have to looked hard to find a Noraid group, usually in a NI expat pub in NY or Boston with expats already involved in that from home and then only by inquiry. I'd wager 99% of Americans of Irish extraction had no involvement with paramilitary matters in NI during the Troubles whatsoever. Still, even now, that group endorses the GFA:

    NORAID - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    What most did, beyond the usual Irish camaraderie stuff, was support civil rights and a peaceful resolution so those 'back home' could all live safe and well, supported then and now US-Ireland investment efforts, cultural exchanges and tourism, etc. You know, the George Mitchell and Clintons kind of stuff.

    'Plans are afoot in America,' you lot have done far too feckin much harm already. We're trying to get rid of British rule and don't wish to swop it for Yankee rule, thank you very much and keep your drones and shock and awe to, yiz arrogant, interfering, murdering so and sos around the world. If you knew anything about this hole you'd know the RUC never went away, the name was changed. See, one day they were the RUC and the next day the very same men and women became the PSNI (incorporating the RUC) That's their full title.
    This 'appearance' they have made is from years ago, not today and, as I said the bulk of them were RUC members anyhow. Also sticking a few taigs in makes no real difference, just look at the legal system set up with plenty of Catholics at the top now and some would say they are as bad, if not worse, than the previous lot.
