Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    One would think that the MaTH would learn a valuable lesson from this story about his in-laws.

    You have missed out a few paragraphs of this report - very naughty. Selective editing, which deserves to be exposed.

    This is part of the Freemans Journal article report. Fr Ryan was actually president of a local branch of the Land League, had offered a settlement to the bailiffs that was turned down and told the police if blood was spilled it would be on their hands.

    After the battle started it would have been obvious that the RIC would win in the end. They were an armed semi military forced used by Dublin Castle to enforce land laws designed to ensure continuation of the ascendency in Ireland.

    Ancestors of the landlords (the Grady Estate) are buried in the old disused C of I church in Knockainey, along with their cronies.

    In Ireland in the 1880's land agitation against unfair actions by landlords was commonplace. This eviction was a set piece event, emphasised by the fact that the crown used a young Sir Edward Carson (architect of the Northern Ireland Orange state) to prosecute the evicted tenants.

    It is unfair on Fr Ryan (who is dead and cannot respond) to base your opinion on a small part of the newspaper report, without reading all of it, or giving others the chance to do so.

    Publish the whole of the article or take this down.
