The past cannot be allowed to sour the present

Published 26/01/2016

I believe the Republic has come a long way in the last 20 years, never mind the last 100, in terms of our relations with our nearest neighbour.

My concern is how relations might be strained by a resurgent anti-British sentiment.

I believe the Northern issue will be sorted like good cider - it will take time but will come to maturity.

I am watching The Rebellion on RTE. Yes, what those people did back 100 years ago was immensely brave, but let's appreciate it in the context of history.

We cannot keep refighting old wars.
