This isn't helpful either...
The 'sectarian' division between Catholics and Protestants remains at the crux of the <i>problem</i> in Northern Ireland. In some subtle, and not so subtle ways, the problem is communicated to the watchful visitor.On my trip, I was particularly aware of visible graffiti left by the UVF... the 'outlawed' Protestant Ulster Volunteer Force. As you enter any small town in Northern Ireland the first things you may notice are the small flags flying on the telephone poles.... the Union Jack for a Protestant dominated town, and the Irish Tri-Color for a Catholic dominated town.It sort of reminded me of the way lions urinate on trees to mark their territory....well, be that as it may. In any event, the 'message' and the subtle attempts at intimidation continue.
