Race for Aras

•It's the people of the Republic of Ireland (who suffered the least) that continue to drag us through the past of the Troubles. These people, who abandoned their countrymen in Northern Ireland for decades, are the very ones that are not allowing the healing to be final. I say to you all; mind your own business, as you did for many years when we needed your support the most in our struggle for civil rights.

What gives you the right to be judgmental of a man who stood up against oppression when you turned a blind eye? Only those who lived through the nightmare of an unjust regime can comment on the actions of those who fought against it. History will judge Martin McGuinness as a true leader.
