                               My favourite quote from George Bernard Shaw
                                                  Some men see things as they are and say, "Why?";
                                                      I dream of things that never were and say"
                                                                                   "Why not?"
                   The Irish Tricolour                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Rarely has a flag possessed such lasting relevance as that of the "Tricolour", the national flag of the Republic of Ireland. Its three equal stripes illustrate the Irish political landscape as accurately today as in 1848, the year the flag was first unfurled (However, it was not adopted as the national flag of Ireland until independence from Britain on December 6, 1921).

Green as the colour standing for the Irish Catholic nationalists of the south may have something to do with shamrocks and verdant landscapes, but more importantly, green symbolizes revolution. An earlier, unofficial Irish flag the gold harp on a green background, served from 1798 until the early twentieth century as a symbol of nationalism. For centuries the green flag of Ireland was a thing accurst and hated by the English garrison in Ireland, as it is still in their inmost hearts......the green flag of Ireland will be solemnly hoisted over Liberty Hall as a symbol of our faith in freedom, and as a token to all the world that the working class of Dublin stands for the cause of Ireland, and the cause of Ireland is the cause of a separate and distinct nationality.

Why Orange? The colour orange is associated with Northern Irish Protestants because of William of Orange, the King of England who in 1690 defeated the deposed King James II, a Roman Catholic, in the fateful Battle of the Boyne near Dublin. William III's victory secured Protestant dominance over the island, to the enormous benefit of the 17th-century colonizers of northern Ireland the English (mainly Anglicans) and Scots (mostly Presbyterians). Sometimes called Orangemen, Protestants in Northern Ireland celebrate the anniversary of the battle each July 12th.

The white in the center signifies a lasting truce between the "Orange" and the "Green," and I trust that beneath its folds the hands of the Irish Protestant and the Irish Catholic may be clasped in generous and heroic brotherhood.

        OLYMPICS / Barcelona 1992: Boxing: Irish eyes on boxing golds

IRELAND have two chances of winning their first Olympic boxing gold medal in history, with both Wayne McCullough and Michael Carruth winning their semi- finals yesterday.
McCullough was first up, in the bantamweights, where he and the North Korean Gwang Li staged three rounds of non-stop aggressive action, which the 22-year-old from Belfast won 21-16.
Gwang, who beat the world champion, Serafim Todorov, in the previous round, did not go easily. McCullough said facing him had been 'like fighting against a wall'.
McCullough, the Commonwealth champion, now faces one of the all-conquering Cubans, Joel Casamayor, in the final.
Carruth will also take on a Cuban, the world welterweight champion, Juan Hernandez, in his final after beating Thailand's Arkom Chenglai 11-4. It was an altogether quieter ride for the 25- year-old Dubliner, whose father, Austin, is the team's assistant coach.
But it is the identity of the chief coach which may be Ireland's secret weapon. He is Nicholas Hernandez Cruz, and he comes from Cuba, the best amateur boxing nation in the world.
Ireland have won only two boxing medals in history. John McNally won the batanmweight silver in Helsinki in 1952 and Fred Teidt the welterweight silver in Melbourne four years later.
The rest of the semi-finals saw a largely uninterrupted Cuban march, led by their phenomenal heavyweight champion, Felix Savon, who cruised through 23-3 against Arnold van der Lijde, of the Netherlands.
