Rob Walsh: “There was no lack of support here in Boston for the IRA when I was growing up. There was a tin on the counter of our local pizza place that collected money for Noraid. There were a lot of them around. There were pins for sale that would say ‘Sinn Fein Provisionals’, and people had Bobby Sands shirts; ‘26 + 6 = 1’ – you’d see that on stickers a lot, and now and then you still see it. I think if you were to ask most Irish-Americans what they think of Northern Ireland they’d say they are in favour of an united Ireland. I imagine that’s what the population of Ireland wants, too.”
