The reasons I brought up "The Troubles" is because for many years, I followed a band that hailed from Belfast. They decided they'd much rather form a band and play music than get involved in the mess and emigrated to the US. They were a mixture of Catholic and Protestant. Much is made of the "Troubles" but there are also those that saw it for what it was and decided to do something else.
I'll raise a glass of Guinness to you, Irish Royalist and wish you a joyful holiday season also.
