Last week, I looked up my grandfather Pat Harris's application for a military pension in records recently released - but any pride I felt has long since departed, leaving only a sense of waste and foreboding.

The sense of waste comes from his later impoverished life due to his IRA service, and the equally impoverished country that came after the Civil War, when we exchanged a relatively tolerant society for clerical repression.
