A fantabulous anniversary of the Irish-Uk financial split in 1925.
Signed on this day. If you like round numbers like 100th anniversary, you're out of luck. It's a 92nd on this thread, and if you have a unusual fixation about 92nd anniversaries, then this one's for you.
Something to do with the border, and us not being able to pay some money, so we agreed that the 6 counties border was the same as it was in 1920, and nice Mr Baldwin said we didn't owe him any money at all, at all, and could buy some sweets on our way home. But we had to pay for all the damage we caused while we were winning the war of independence.
