MALACHI O'Doherty congratulated Ruan Piennar for staying with Ulster and wrote that this had renewed his love for Northern Ireland (DebateNI, October 11).
He mentioned that Northern Ireland, in the past, was basically a backwater of religious conservatism, but was now moving forward (in his view).
I wonder did Malachi notice the irony in what he said, as it was likely the religious conservatism that he condemns which encouraged Ruan to stay here?
