I tend not to talk or write about the politics of the Northern Ireland conflict, having grown up in the North during 'The Troubles'.
"The Troubles" is a particularly Irish euphemism: in reality it was a war.
I can still remember the sounds of the first bomb I ever heard. And to this day there are back roads at home that I can't drive alone after dark because of terrifying childhood recollections of British army, IRA and UDR checkpoints and the knowledge of the murders that took place on or near them.
