Why we are the way we are in Northern Ireland


I think the video above captures better than any words could, why Northern Ireland remains so unstable.

Vice correspondent asks some kids on the outskirts of Belfast:
“For all the Americans out there, what’s the celebration? Why are you doing it?”
The children respond:
Children (whole): ……………………… silence*
Child 1: “I dono [sic].” children laugh*
Child 2: “Battle of the Boyne and all that action there…”
Child 3: “Bit of fun”.
I explored the video and the surrounding issues further on eamonnmallie.com. You can read that essay here.
