Oliver Cromwell. To Hell or Connaught? On this day 1658

I won’t speak ill of the dead, but there is not much doubt where many Irish people believed Oliver Cromwell should have gone when he died this day 1658. To provide promised land grants to his soldiers who razed Irish homes, his advice to the poor misbegotten Irish peasantry was “To Hell or Connaught.” Nope, he was not a very pleasant chappie, at all.
This link at http://www.british-civil-wars.co.uk suggests how effective and how nasty a piece of work he was.

From the time of his visit to Ireland to 1921, Ireland fought a number of bitter wars of Independence, something I write about in For the Love of Being Irish

On This Day in 1985, They Found the Titanic

On this day in 1985, the wreck of the Belfast built RMS Titanic was found by a joint US-French expedition lead by Robert Ballard. In my new book For the Love of Being Irish, a magnificently illustrated A-Z of Ireland, (illustrations by Mark Anderson) the letter “T” is for Titanic. In this homage to my homeland, most letters of the alphabet are represented by some interesting facts and a limerick except: the letter “T”, “I” for Independence and “F” for Famine which I deemed to be sensitive topics not best illustrated by a lyrical limerick.
