    Default Ethnic cleansing of border protestants?

    Widow condemns theft of husband


    Thought this was a thoroughly depressing but very interesting article in the Newsletter, coming shortly after border prods brought their concerns to Dublin. One of those aspects of the troubles that is being rewritten if not wilfully fogotten.

    Christmas is a very sad time for many in NI. There will be many empty places at tables around the country tomorrow.

    The upside is that this evening I see Protestant and Catholic churches enjoying Xmas in Donegal services with no bother at all.

    Roadside memorials are unwelcome sites in many communities, even when it memorializes death by car accident. One of the problems is that it invites gatherings in neighborhoods whose residents had nothing to do with the murder. Thirty-five years is a long time for some people and the widow should find other ways to celebrate the life of her dead husband.
