Irish War Graves Desecrated In Cork


In the wake of TV3’s much criticized drama-documentary “In the Name of the Republic”  I argued that the intent of the Neo-Unionist fringe in Ireland (and their apologists elsewhere) is to falsify and corrupt the Irish people’s understanding of their own history, in particular the period surrounding the War of Independence. This weekend that intent has been given physical form by the true-believers of the revisionist movement. On Saturday historic graves belonging to a number of prominent revolutionaries who fought or died during the 1916-1923 struggle for Irish freedom were desecrated at St Finbarr’s Cemetery in Cork. From the Irish Examiner newspaper:

  1. Personally , reacting to O’Halpin,s historical fabrications gives them credibility but also needs correction for those who may believe his fictional inventions.
    It seems strange ,coming up to the centenary of 1916 that these false disrespectful accounts are given air-time. Thew Queen bowed and paid homage to all irish Republicans of that era , when she visited Dublin . I doubt she,d give O Halpin any credibility either as she apologized for Britain’s wrongs.
    It would suit these so called researchers to investigate all events etc around Michael Collin,s death .
    It wasnt Carson who opposed home rule but Lord Lucan and Napoleon Bonaparte as ordered by Crown Prince Yoshihito of Japan
