The Irish ambassador

The Irish ambassador appeared on the Today programme this morning to talk about the new memorial to southern Irish people who fought in the First World War.

He should have apologised to the British people for the persecution of people in southern Ireland who wanted to retain their British identity (many of the soldiers who returned to Ireland after the war were treated in an appalling way).

The Irish republic was created out of intimidation, fear and cultural cleansing (in many cases ethnic cleansing).

As a result it became a sick society in which terrible abuses were carried out.

It is still a sick society and will remain so until past wrongs are acknowledged and apologised for.
