  2. I can remember watching this on TV some 40 years ago! I had forgotten what savages both sides of the Catholic-Protestant struggle were. There is certainly a comparison to be made between Islam and Daesh and the Roman Catholic church and the IRA and the Protestant Church and the UDA. And nowadays, how on earth can they have chased our soldiers to punish them and let the other side’s killers go scot free? An excellent post and an excellent reminder of how like Iraq or Afghanistan Ulster used to be.
