POLITICALLY ASHAMED…..


IGNORING OUR HISTORY…
We really must enter a protest against the way in which Irish history is written by some English historians. In Wright’s History of Ireland we find the following gratuitous assertion offered to excuse De Clare’s crime: “Such a refinement of cruelty must have arisen from a suspicion of treachery, or from some other grievous offence with which we are not acquainted.” If all the dark deeds of history are to be accounted for in this way, we may bid farewell to historical justice. And yet this work, which is written in the most prejudiced manner, has had a far larger circulation in Ireland than Mr. Haverty’s truthful and well-written history. When Irishmen support such works, they must not blame their neighbours across the Channel for accepting them as truthful histories.

“Historical justice…” ? Not if this political brothel has anything to do with it…….
