POLITICAL GUIDE FOR TOURISTS TO IRELAND

There seem to be a few things that confuse those who don't know Ireland well... Thanks to my friend, Bernie, this should help with that...




'Political Guide for Tourists to Ireland

Ireland is an island to the west of Britain
but Northern Ireland is just off the mainland
- not the Irish mainland, the British mainland.

The capital of Ireland is Dublin . It has a population of a million
people, all of whom will be shopping in Newry this afternoon.
They travel to Newry because it is in the North, which is not part of Ireland, but
still pay in Euros.

Under the Irish constitution, the North used to be in Ireland , but a
successful 30-year campaign of violence for Irish unity ensured that it is now definitely in the UK .
Had the campaign lasted any longer the North might now be in France.

Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland. It has a population of
half a million, half of whom own houses in Donegal.
Donegal is in the north but not in the North. It is in the South.
No, not the south, the South.

There are two parliaments in Ireland.
The Dublin parliament is called the Dáil, (pronounced "Doyle"),
an Irish word meaning a place where banks receive taxpayers' money.
The one in Belfast is called Stormont, an Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'placebo',
or deliberately ineffective drug.

Their respective jurisdictions are defined by the border,
an imaginary line on the map to show fuel launderers
where to dump their chemical waste and bi-products.

Protestants are in favour of the border, which generates millions of
pounds in smuggling for Catholics, who are totally opposed to it.

Travel between the two states is complicated because Ireland is the
only country in the world with two M1 motorways.
The one in the North goes west to avoid the south and
the one in the South goes north to avoid the price of drink!

We have two types of democracy in Ireland.
Dublin democracy works by holding a referendum and then
allowing the government to judge the result.
If the government thinks the result is wrong, the referendum is held again.
Twice in recent years the government decided the
people's choice was wrong and ordered a new referendum.

Belfast democracy works differently.
It has a parliament with no opposition, so the government is always right.
This system generates envy in many world capitals, especially Dublin .

Ireland has three economies - northern, southern and black.
Only the black economy is in the black. The other two are in the red.

All versions of the IRA claim to be the real IRA but only one of them is the Real IRA.
The North's biggest industry is the production of IRAs.
Consequently, we now have the Provisional, Continuity and Real IRA.
The Real IRA is by far the most popular among young graffiti writers
simply because it is the easiest to spell.

I trust this clarifies things and has answered
many previously unanswered questions for you.

HONEST TOM STEELE.. his own story...

They say that behind every good man... is a story... Tom Steele is very much part of the story behind Daniel O'Connell... and yet this interesting man, Tom Steele, who rests near to his friend, indeed has his own story, well worth the read.

Turtle Bunbury delves into the history we know, or think we do, but also takes us into far more than we could expect.

Be sure to also check out the latest addition to Turtle's prolific writings, at Wistorical, his Facebook page, which you can access via this link https://www.facebook.com/Wistorical



Don't plan on leaving quickly, there is so much to read and absorb... including a great article on Tom Steele...






HONEST TOM STEELE (1788-1848) – LANDLORD AND REPEALER
Born: Derrymore, Co Clare, 3 November 1788.
Died: London, 15 June 1848.
The annals of Irish history are littered with Protestants of English origin who effectively deserted the flag of their faith and ‘went native’. Few were more unusual than Honest Tom Steele, a graduate of Cambridge, a landed proprietor of Clare, an inventor of diving bells and a veteran of the Spanish Republican army who served as Daniel O'Connell's right-hand man for 24 years .
Tom Steele looked down at the turbulent waters of the Thames flowing beneath him and closed his eyes. His mind was a whirl of images – crumbling castles, bloody battles, beautiful women, broken promises, vast crowds and, omnipresent, his beloved Daniel O’Connell, the Emancipator of Catholics, alongside whom ‘Honest Tom’ had loyally served for 24 years. Tom opened his eyes, inhaled deeply and jumped.
Thomas Steele was an eccentric Protestant gentleman born in 1788 at his family home near Tulla in Co Clare. His forbears had served with distinction in Monmouth's Regiment during the reign of Charles II and received lands in Co. Tipperary by way of payment. In the early 18th century, a branch of the family relocated to East Clare where Tom’s grandfather secured ownership of considerable property. Tom’s father William perished when he was just a baby. The child was then raised by his bachelor uncle and namesake, Thomas Steele, at the sturdy new Georgian mansion of Cullane House outside the village of Quin. Young Tom received his elementary classical training from Rev. Dr. Fitzgerald at Ennis Grammar School. He was subsequently educated at Trinity College Dublin and Magdalene College Cambridge, graduating with an M.A. in 1820. His tutor considered him one of the best Greek scholars of his day.
Anyone at college during those years was inevitably swept up on the tide of romance, ignited by the Napoleonic Wars and given voice in the poetry of Keats and Lord Byron. When Tom’s uncle passed away in 1821, the 33-year-old inherited the substantial Cullane estate. However, rather than move into the barrack-like mansion of Cullane House, Tom set about restoring the ruins of Craggaunowen Castle, an ancient MacNamara tower-house on his land.
It was Tom’s dream that Cragganauowen would be the home where he and Miss Matilda Crowe of nearby Abbeyfield House, Ennis, would live happily ever after. For weeks on end, Tom sat gazing at Miss Crowe’s bedroom window from a large rock in the River Fergus, known today as Steele’s Rock. Tom was sure she would accept his advances. He was, after all, a much sought after young man, wealthy, intelligent, ‘tall with dark hair … and very good-looking’. Alas, Miss Crowe did not share his ‘ardent sentiment of attraction’ and turned him down.
Women should never underestimate what rejection can do to a man. One of Tom’s first moves was to write a bizarre letter to the elderly Pope Pius VII, urging him to convert to Protestantism without delay. More alarmingly, in 1823, he mortgaged the entire Cullane estate for £10,000, sailed for Spain and secured a commission in the ill-fated rebel army of Rafael del Riego. Tom duly served at the battle of Trocedero and the defence of Cadiz. He managed to avoid the death and execution which befell many of his fellow officers, returned to Ireland and wrote a dramatic personal account of the war.
