    Don't worry Livvie, no-one will be really offended by anything you have said I hope. If they were then they had seriously soft skin after growing up in NI. This type of thread needs to be really well moderated, but I think we have done a decent job so far.

    Nah you're cool Livvie, I'm not at all upset. It was my mistake anyway, I misread what was being said and thought Protestants were being portrayed as religiously motivated. My fault entirely. No offence caused whatsoever, and my apologies for mistaking what you were saying. No harm done eh?

    Nah not really. You simply gave an opinion of something you've known from a distance, and an impression you got from the view you had of the situation. I took it as a generalisation, that was my fault.

    Dont think it has to do with terrorism (more likely drugs), but my cousin was shot dead about an hour ago outside his mum's house. Just checking the Ulster news now on the radio to find out more.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Badunk. I typed out a response but then deleted it because there aren't any words I can think of that don't sound pathetic next to something as horrendous as that.

    All the best to you and your family.

    All you can do is rally round her chara. Condolences to you and your family and I hope that your aunt can recover from the loss someday.

    Thanks again. Must say, it's hit me harder this morning. Got family members on facebook defending his name, as it looks like there are quite a few people using the site to spread rumours and gossip about him. I dont know what exactly he has done to be murdered on his own mother's doorstep, but to be ghoulish and gloat about it is very sad indeed.

    Mate some people are total cnuts, and at times like this they show their true colours. I can't imagine he done anything to warrant what happened to him, and I'm sure your aunt doesn't deserve to be going through what she's going through.

    Don't get drawn into it though as you really don't want to wind up the cnuts who did this cowardly act.

    Was on the radio news here, man and woman arrested. It's really sad mate, sincere condolences to the family. Said he was a father of a young child too, truly sickening.

    Theres not really another thread to bump on this......

    Nearly a year on from this dispicable act (read OP)......Hope Cacs and his incredibly brave family are doing ok in the circumstances. A disgusting crime that still makes me so angry.

    Cheers, mate. I'm the same: just can't believe it happened.

    Turns out, Christopher may have been murdered because of a love triangle thing. It's not clear yet, but this woman (her surname's Valliday) was apparently hounding my cousin for years. Would often drive past the flat, beep her horn, shout his name and whatnot. She's married to a drug dealer. The drug dealer's family are something like the Maguires in Shamelss- a crime family who are a law unto themselves, basically. Anyway, she helped set Christopher up (police say there was 500 texts and phone calls from her in the hours leading up to the murder). Christopher was lured out of the flat, approached the car that the husband and wife were in, leaned in to talk to them and the husband emptied a full clip into him. Christopher lay dying, but had the sense to phone for an ambulance on his mobile and he told them who shot him. He died an hour later. The husband and wife were arrested very quickly (and his brother a few days later- he'd helped burn the getaway vehicle), and now we're just waiting for the wheels of justice. What scares us, is that this Valliday guy has killed two people before and got away with it coz the peelers botched the evidence (he even left his footprint in a pool of blood after slashing a guy). The suspicion is that he's some sort of tout and that the cops ballsed up the previous investigations on purpose to protect their man. All speculation, though. Let's just hope they all get what they deserve.

    fecking unbelievable, though. For someone to be murdered over what may turn out to be an unrequited infatuation. Bonkers.

    Yeah but PJ, if they can get their act together under one banner, get some proper funding, get some serious organisation and discipline this could be a problem. If this group goes Ulster wide, they could gain a lot of grass roots support from the disenfranchised. Shit like this bothers me and I hope it's not the start of things to come.

    Nah the US was the main source of funding for the IRA and since 9/11 that source has pretty much dried up. Sinn Fein can get money stateside but not these breakaway groups.

    I honestly cannot believe this group will have the support they need.

    People have moved on...

    at least I hope so.

    I hope you guys are right. A well organised small group can do a huge amount of damage with limited resources and a wrong mentality.

    Oh, OK. I'd love to here a Unionist view on this then, just to see if there is another side to the coin. Where were they marching? Was it in a republican/nationalist area?

    I find both groups finding the need to march as retarded. I couldn't care less about any of that shit anymore, it's old and tired. It will probably never change because entrenched views are passed on and on. I'm drunk as feck so I apologise if that doesn't make sense but both sides are holding our progress back. I've come to realise I couldn't give a shit if someone living here wants to classify themselves as Irish or British or Northern Irish. Or if they want to say Derry or Londonderry etc etc. None of it matters.

    It's my area (New Lodge) that it's been happening in/around.

    Wouldn't be an issue if people were respectful of each other.

    But, even though I place most of the 'blame' for all this parades nonsense at the loyalists' door, it is still just a minority on both sides who are going out of their way to be offended and cause all the trouble.

    Was on the phone to home tonight and apparently the police are round Yorkgate/Tiger's Bay end of the New Lodge tonight.
