VANDALISM OF THE POLITICALLY IGNORANT...?
VANDALISED BY A POLITICALLY IGNORANT NATIONALIST...
A reader in the South-East of Ireland has contacted us to ask if we could highlight a recent incident of vandalism concerning an Irish republican monument which she, respectfully, walks past twice each day. She told us of how angry she is to realise that someone could think so little of a monument erected to those that fought for the limited freedom we have today to the point that they could besmirch that memory in the manner they did, and described the damage done as having been perhaps carried out more from the perpetrator being politically ignorant than being intentionally destructive but, never the less, she considers the deed to have been one of vandalism. And we wholeheartedly agree. We will publish a 'before' and 'after' pic here on Wednesday, 5th April, and you can make your own mind up... Thanks for the visit - see you on the 5th. Sharon.
