Re: Ireland?

I remember going to Northern Ireland in the summer of '97 and thinking, "Wouldn't it be great if they had aikido here?" Then Ian Dodkins started posting here a lot, so I knew that there was a start.

Has Aikido helped? I don't know. I think (my impression from the international news, along occasional conversations with people from Northern Ireland) that the situation has improved dramatically in the past decade or so, but it's not over. I just saw this news story today (I hope the link works)
