Bobby Sands

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the death of Bobby Sands. There were commemorations in Ireland. I remember following this story at the time, Sands in particular and the conflict in general. With Boston being such an Irish city, this was an ever present thing. I remember someone saying once that when you stand on the cliffs in the West of Ireland they tell you that "the next parish over is Boston". And that is how we felt about it.
