Re: An interactive map of the border

I also remember hearing of bombings, arson, kneecappings, kidnapping (even a horsenapping) almost every day on the news in the ROI, it was relentless. We even had a suspected IRA bombmaker living next door in the granny flat. I remember the police waiting with guns drawn inside my house to catch him. The people of NI are traumatized still by what happened.

I believe the visit of the Queen was powerfully healing, an indication that we had all moved on. It's a shared pain whether people in the UK realize it or not. Some may have forgotten, and I hope that they are not forced to remember. The selfishness and indifference of the Brexit crowd is almost pathological.
