He was no Alex Guinness or Larry Olivier but there is a "one of our own" thing with local men and women made good in Northern Ireland and I think that's a great attitude to have , if we don't commemorate "our own" who will ?

On the flip side there are those who would make little of a locals achievements whether it be making it in Hollywood , TV , on stage , getting a gong or whatever , always smacks of jealousy to me , why not just be happy for their success ?

We should be very proud of those produced by our wee country. Our wee country has punched well above its weight and produced many fine people in all walks of life. Sadly, some choose to denigrate them, irrespective of their achievements. It does smack of jealousy to me.  ::)
Wear your RED POPPY with PRIDE.  Lest we forget. BUY BRITISH.  Support the forces of LAW and ORDER, PAST and PRESENT. Justice for the BRITISH ARMY.
