Tricolour the real 'butcher's apron'

THIS week I heard a republican on Radio Ulster refer to the Union flag as the "butcher's apron". Of course, he is entitled to his view.

However, I am sure all of those Europeans commemorating D-Day last week would have different views of the Union flag and the part it paid in the liberation of Europe.

It may well be that, as events unfold of mass graves of innocents in Tuam and elsewhere in the Republic, the real "butcher's apron" on this island since 1922 has been the tricolour.
