I'm really concerned with what is happening in Belfast currently. The brother-in-law lives in Donegal and is a Garda (policeman) in Letterkenny, which is one of the border towns very close to (London)Derry City and there is very likely to be tensions around there given what is happening.

I saw a couple of videos from Belfast last night and it appears to be 14-18 year olds wearing hoodies and balaclavas throwing petrol bombs at a bus whilst its driving down the road. You couldn't pay me enough money in the world to drive a bus in Belfast at the moment!

Belfast is crazy at the moment, Derry and NewtonAbbey not far behind. Most of my family have had the sense to move out of there, but there are a few still there in the more rural areas. Such a shame as it really is a beautiful place when the vocal minority are not causing problems.

It's sad. Northern Ireland is a lovely place, went to Belfast and drove up to the Giant's Causeway. Everyone I met was friendly.  Sad

Just for the record, its now being reported that the drier was off the bus before it was petrol bombed and it was moving by momentum only, not aying it was right but thank christ the driver got off.

As for the rioters, as noted above the DUP met with paramilitary leaders a few weeks back, these being the same paramilitary groups who run the drugs trade over there and its being reported this morning that same are threatening to increase drug debts for anyone that refuses to riot. this has nothing to do with ďnot being heardĒ.
