With great finesse, I have managed to re-locate myself to Dublin for the day, having spent the last three days within a mile and half walk from where John De Chastelain is expected to announce (according to Dublin sources) that his work with IRA is done. The choice of Harold Good is not a bad one. It hasn’t gone down well with DUP, but if his account is sufficiently graphic, he may just get this process off to a plausible start. Handing in the lot effectively makes the IRA history. Along with a standing down of vigilante and criminal activities, that should just about get us of (What Mitchell McLaughlin has termed) the last page of the l;ast chapter.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
