Slugger O'Tool

Mick Fealty's site Slugger O'Tool, looks at various strands of political aspects of life in Northern Ireland. Reading the extensive comments in some of the posts, such as this one on an Orange Order parade which went past a nationalist area, is fascinating.
I suggest drinking a few pints of Guinness while doing so as they can be a long read.

Liked this quote I saw in the comments by hurdy gurdy man

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
George Santayana
In the paralell universe that is Northern Ireland this maxim becomes inverted - it is those who cannot forget the past that are most wont to repeat it.
