Wrong era for disrespect
Sir -- The refusal of Margaretta D'Arcy to observe a minute's silence for Ronan Kerr was really puerile and pathetic.
This is the year 2011 and not 1916 or 1969. This is the era of the Good Friday Agreement and the IRA having put its arms out of use. Heinous monstrosities like the Penal Laws and Cromwell have been consigned to the dustbin of history.
