Dublin for the great Eucharistic Congress a few years ago,

and went one day with my friends to Glasnevin Cemetery. My friends were Irish Catholics, and they innocently asked one of the sextons where it was that Michael Collins was buried. One could not forget the vitriolic nature of the reply! The trouble clearly was that Mr Collins had been largely responsible for the famous treaty with Britain.

I think it is pertinent to inquire whether Christianity and its teachings come in at all, when "Irish Nationalism " is the subject under discussion? To my mind, vitriol-throwing are just the two words which succinctly describe the behaviour, and I am grateful to Mr Swing for showing up the monster in the light of day.
