    Hopefully he will mention millions of pounds spent on securing the State from the Provos and their Loyalist killer sidekicks which could have been spent building the health, education and housing services

    It's an interesting discussion that focuses on issues such as civil liberties, resentment of northern nationalists and northern refugees in towns such as Dundalk and a strong partitionist sentiment that built up among sections of southern society.

    And the refugee camps in the South in the 70's..

    How our Government colluded with a foreign Government to cover up the worst bombing atrocity in the State prior to the Omagh bombing..

    How a section of the largest party in the State were involved in starting up the Provos..

    How many civil liberties of Irish citizens were trampled on..

    How the Heavy Gang dealt with "subversives"....

    There's a hell of a lot to talk about all right...

    Plus.. ask most of the soldiers and Gardai who were on border duty.. they loved it.. they knew that under Green Book rules they were very very unlikely to be attacked on the border.. and the overtime was soft out..

    The Irish Government had no need to "secure the border" against the RA.. and if they were attacked by Loyalists, they could have complained to the Loyalists bosses.. their counterparts in London
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    The effects of the SF/IRA "struggle" are still felt in the South as the Mongrel offspring of SF/IRA the dissos continue where the Provos left off with extortion rackets robberies and smuggling.
