Irish history has been airbrushed according to a political agenda by multiple groups wanting to cast themselves as the ‘true patriots’ – not surprising, the same happens in many other countries. In some the history of the World Wars being massively censored and airbrushed to suit a nationalistic bias. The victor always re-writes the narrative and the population drink it in from childhood in ‘government approved’ history books.
Publish a different perspective and you’ll be lambasted as a crank or revisionist.
