I cant say I'm any more bothered about the north of Ireland than I am about...say...Newcastle.
So long as people aren't throwing nail-bombs into restaurants packed with kids and families because they're annoyed about Bloody Sunday then everything else can be sorted out by having a chat. And once people aren't murdering each other over something that happened 40 years ago, the news out of Northern Ireland is about as interesting as the news out of Newcastle. This is actually a good thing. The various groups in Northern Ireland have tended to look to outside allies to solve their issues rather than actually talking to each other.
Boredom with the eternal petty hatred and point scoring of Northern Ireland isn't new either.
"Then came the Great War: Every institution, almost, in the world was strained. Great Empires have been overturned. The whole map of Europe has been changed. The position of countries has been violently altered. The modes of thought of men, the whole outlook on affairs, the grouping of parties, all have en countered violent and tremendous changes in the deluge of the world. But as the deluge subsides and the waters fall short, we see the dreary steeples of Fermanagh and Tyrone emerging once again. The integrity of their quarrel is one of the few institutions that has been unaltered in the cataclysm which has swept the world."
Winston Churchill - 1922.
Northern Ireland - boring the world with its petty hatred since 1609.
