    and this astounds me.  This vote, not the pro-IRA stance, that I can understand, if not support considering the district.  How many Northern Irish (conscription fodder) fought for the union. The battle of the Wilderness was a frickin slaughter of hibernians.  Heck, post civil war the Irish were lynched for being Irish at a greater clip than any other minority in the south.  And this NY congress person/yahoo is trying to make a point?
