Gerry Juniors still need to believe…

I SUSPECT that the Gregory Campbell graphic on Ogra SF’s website led Jim Wells to discover the Gerry Juniors are to visit the Narrow Water site where the IRA slaughtered 18 British soldiers. Ghoulish and crass, though not unexpected of the puerile SF youth wing. Tactically, it was a well-executed (literally) IRA op, but then so was Loughgall, and I don’t recall Young Unionist history field trips to the site of where the SAS wiped out the South Tyrone Brigade. To be honest, Ogra always seemed in need of some distraction in case they remember a united Ireland is no nearer now than when the IRA launched its Warrenpoint operation in 1979.
