Their deaths were an affront to humanity.

Always remembered John, Joseph and Dougald.

Well to be honest, I'm glad Jack.

I don't want his ridiculous attempts at English wasting this thread.

That reminds me how scummy do you have to be to desecrate a Cenotaph, it's happened around here in the past. Thankfully not for years.

The Cenotaph in my town has been vandalised a lot.

The majority of people in Coatbridge are Catholics and they hate the British Army.

They never get caught, but the police don't try very hard to find them.

Tomorrow marks the 30th anniversary of one of the most barbaric and evil acts of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Hundreds of people gathered at the Cenotaph in Enniskillen to pay their respects to the war dead and were the victims of an IRA bomb.

Eleven Protestants were killed in the outrage and more than sixty others were injured.

The Cenotaph today has eleven bronze doves on it, in remembrance of those who were slaughtered as they paid their respects.
