Anonymous asked: Great blog, some photos I've never seen which is nice! As an American daughter of a Belfast father, I love seeing this blog, with its spirit of hope and peace, instead of the bitterness and anger that even now draws in so many who weren't even born at pIRA ceasefire. Just nice to see history and Irish patriots recalled without hate or sectarianism. Thanks :)
Thank you very much. I couldn’t find a Tumblr IRA blog to begin with, but I assumed it would be one full of hatred and resentment. Instead I tried to create this.
mickinamerica asked: Just scrolled through your whole blog, since the beginning. Brilliantly done. Love that you're pro-republican, but realize that senseless violence (and especially violence aimed at innocents) is not the way to go. Many Irish (or Americans who are fans of the IRA) fail to see this middle ground. Keep it going, love the pictures.
quoththeravendamnyourepoor asked: You guys aren't racists right? I'm just wondering because of the name it seems nationalist in the wrong way.
Nope not one bit. Nationalist in the sense that Ireland needs to be given back to the Irish and it stays that way. I don’t know the intentions of men who make graffiti saying “Brits out” but what says for me is get your military out of our country and let us have control of our government. Not, fuck off Brits.
"Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid with their lives and freedoms."
