I am writing to you regarding your article on the new memorial for Irish soldiers who fought in World War 1. I wish to correct the error in your article. These men, although Irish, fought as members of the British army, and therefore should be correctly reffered to as British soldiers.
They did not fight for Ireland, but were duped by John Redmond and rogue politicians into fighting against countries who were friends of Ireland. Many of them regretted what they had done.
I am surprised at the haste in which these British soldiers are being commemorated, particularly in light of the atrocities carried out by the British army in the six counties.
