Meet The Irish by Harry McGuirk
Representative of Eire and the North of Ireland went to England to try to hammer out and finalize the Good Friday Peace Prospects. After two or three days of talk, however, some delegates were not pleased and left the talks. Gerry Adams was heard to say that there is still a chance that the talks can succeed. The people really want peace. Everyone involved in the talks should get back to the talks and try harder. We say, "three cheers for peace." "Three cheers more for the peacemakers."
Croke Park Dublin is all new and shiny. Whole families like to go to Dublin for the matches. There is a big complaint, however. They charge an eighteen-pound admission for children. This is a "ripoff". We’re sure that the sportsmen running the GAA will get the figures right for the kids. The Grel Oige is always on our hearts and minds. They will be the new sports champions.
There is a rotten and fearful killer sweeping through Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. The killer is heroin. It’s back again and being distributed at a fast rate by the pushers who care not for lives of the young or old. An addict had to have his leg amputated after he injected his leg with a contaminated needle. Others died last year when they used the drug.
In Liverpool, the bad dope is back on the streets. There are thirteen thousand heroin drug addicts in Dublin alone.
Top police have stated that there are six drug leaders in Dublin alone and the police have them under surveillance!
