Paisley is a bigot....bah there are stories of him when he was a younger minister in the 50s/60s trying to brainwash the Catholic women millworkers by kidnapping them...to make them convert to Protestantism.........of course he is all against 'Popery' but he made himself head of his own church the Free Presbyterians....

He is in his late 70s now i think...i am cracking open a bottle of champagne when he goes....cruel but he is not worth anyones tears...problem is we have Ian Paisley Junior..who is just a mouthpiece for his father but i imagine he will continue to be a mouthpiece even after his father passes away

Ditto . A nice little town in Vermont or something, or a seaside town on the coast of Maine...yeah. That'd be nice.

Living in New York City in some ways would be cool, yes, because it is a very neat place to go-I'd just be afraid that I'd get lost, 'cause when I went there once before, I got so freakin' confused, LOL. But I wouldn't mind living in, like, a suburb of the city, and yet still have the city nearby for weekend shopping and stuff like that .

Army pulls down N. Irish watchposts to aid peace

Fri Jul 29, 2005 3:45 PM BST

By Jodie Ginsberg

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Britain began dismantling Northern Ireland army watchposts -- symbols of its military presence -- on Friday after a pledge by the IRA to down arms revived peace efforts in the province.

The move made good on commitments by Britain and Ireland to carry out promises delayed by the Irish Republican Army's past failure to disarm and came as work resumed to secure a political deal that would restore a suspended regional government.

Pulling down the eight hill-top watchtowers along the Irish border is one of the actions long demanded by Irish nationalists to normalise life in a province slowly emerging from a 30-year conflict in which 3,600 people were killed.

"In light of yesterday's developments, the Chief Constable and I have decided that a further reduction in security profile is possible," General Commanding Officer Reddy Watt said.

The move put pressure on the IRA to fulfil its side of the deal by dumping the huge arsenal of guns and explosives that sustained its fight for a united Ireland until a 1997 ceasefire.
