I worked with Kevin Lynch's nephew for years. I'm from the north with a protestant father and catholic mother. No religion in our house.
He took a fair while to warm to me but we became great pals. He would have given me the shirt from his back. We never discussed politics (I've no interest) but we had loads of shared interests.
Hopefully the peace becomes stronger in the north and the youth will drive the hatred away for ever.
You're a Dungiven man I take it? Sur, went to Romania with a few lads and one lady from there ( they've a pub in the town)
