read with great interest Anthony
McIntyre's review of this latest (I assume) foray
by Mr Coogan into Irish affairs. Have grown to deeply
respect Mr. McIntyre and his views in the relatively
short time I have been visiting this site - I was
taken with his stinging criticism of Coogan's work.
I have read both "The Troubles" and
"The IRA" by Coogan, and felt both
were adequately written, if somewhat tending towards
the unionist/loyalist side of things. I also felt
both were over-long, and it was sometimes difficult
to continue reading, as I sometime felt my thoughts
wandering to such concerns as "are my shoes tied
properly", "what will I fix for supper tonight"
or " did I put the fabric softener in with the
laundry"? Though both offered a wealth of information,
its presentation and obvious bias made both difficult
read. I respect Mr. McIntyre opinions, and will scratch
"Wherever Green is Worn" off my 'to
thanks and sympathies to Anthony McIntyre for his
valiant slog through the volume.
