The Demonization of Ireland’s Past

“The need to recover a sense of ourselves is imperative. The demonization of our past has to stop, as does the cycle of blame about everything that has gone wrong in Ireland in the past hundred years. We have many important anniversaries planned between 2011 and 2016. They could be occasions of yet more recrimination, but, with good leadership in every aspect of Irish life, they will be times to begin healing, forgiveness and self-acceptance in a small island on the Atlantic edge of Europe.”
