Hey, Net access from the Heritage hotel in Port Laoise. Good guest perk. Lovely hotel too, from what little my eyes managed to capture of it as they were drooping last night going to bed. Which was super comfortable. Scored the single bed too, which pissed the Shorty off no end.

On a more somber note, funeral today. Not too much fun. His family are bearing up amazingly well, considering. I just feel so awkward, knowing maybe 10 people at most. I wish there was more I was able to do for them.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh siad. To think that I had really thought that we had gone beyond this, and that finally, people were looking for peace. It's the sort of thing that makes your stomach turn, really, isn't it? For too long, people have been living in fear in Northern Ireland. With both islands falling in an economic shambles and people struggling to make lives for themselves, why are the Real IRA choosing now again to make their cause known? Why try to split up a province which needs unity, now as much as ever? What's gone wrong over the last year in Northern Ireland that the IRA feel the need to blame the British for now again? Two young men dead and another four wounded. Why do people too often decide that the best course of action is war?

Also, ar dheis Dé go raibh siad. A cousin of mine is the first victim in those road accidents, but it's heartbreaking to see all three deaths, especially that little baby's. I hope that those in hospital after these recover well, we don't need more tragedies.

A not so nice day today. Time to make a change.
