    Default Should disgraceful Anglo Irish sign be exhibited in Museum at Collins Barracks.

    I was horrified to see on TVs news an item which allowed cameras into bowels of former Anglo Irish Bank. And it showed the former bank sign erected in our national museum in Collins Barracks of all places. Some guy with name in Irish said it was an historical thing showing collapse of old order. I dont know what old order he was thinking about - the old order which founded and kept Anglo is good order did not destroy it. I think it was the new order of recent years that brought about the biggest banking downfall in the world for which we are saddled.

    But is it right that this sign should be on prominent display in our national museum,should it not be left in a box in the vaults ?

    If we rid our museums of everything that shamed us, we wouldn't have very many things in our museums.

    Celts, Vikings, Normans and the British are all part of our history and our living culture, to one degree or another. Unless you regard our identity as weak, your sod all to frett about.

    I suppose Seanie might yet be a good man if the Germans pay back all the money we put into Anglo.

    History should be reflected in full. Good, bad and ugly.

    It's important to keep historical items. Especially shameful ones. So we never forget...

    "The Ballybrack Cumann, FF, demands that the Anglo-Irish bank sign should not under any circumstances be placed in An Iarslamann Náisiúnta, and all reference to its possible continued existence be forthwith refrained from heretofore".

    itll be close enough to arbour hill for seanie to drop in and reflect on his glory days when he gets sent down
