Northern Ireland Rejects Recent Violence

13 Mar

At Wednesday lunchtime people from across Northern Ireland took to the streets to present a united front in response to the dissident Republican murders of two members of the armed forces and one police officer. Protestors stood in united silence against the sudden resurgence in terrorist violence over the previous few days.

During the vigil one young man stepped forward and raised a piece of paper which was greeted with sporadic applause.

It read “RIRA SCUM!!! CIRA SCUM!!!”

    1. What’s the craic with Andy Mo in all the papers! I think the phrase begins Media and then something I can’t write!

    Bun spot is well and truly dead now!

    2. If you read something on SWS, it doesn’t require the prefix ‘apparently’.
