SS Great Britain, Suez Canal, and so on. Singapore, Hong Kong, India, etc. were added to the Empire.
Ireland had a ringside seat for all of this.
Oh well thats great isn't it!
While most on here bemoan the imagined 'it'll do' culture of the state, others long and yearn for pre-independence Ireland when we were part of the honourable, caring Empire.
Now here's Aierlan, wishing not only to be part of the great Empire but happy in the knowledge that we were only a ringside seat! surely an 'it'll do' culture would be better than a subculture of passive acceptance of inferiority.
Oh how lucky we were to be taken under the wings of such a great nation. WOuld that it were th same again!
"Singapore, Hong Kong, India, etc. were added to the Empire." your point?
is there a west brit monopoly on the irish architectural scene?
