I was in Manchester visiting my mother not long after. As I drove towards the centre, the damage started at the upper storeys of buildings and gradually worked its way down to total devastation at ground zero.

This was of course 5 years before 9/11 when the boys back in the old country were still tremendously popular in the shamrock pubs and bars of New York and Boston.

......don't get me started, Steve.

Did you see Osso's thread on the rebuilding of Manchester?

Very interesting. She posted it about a week ago, and I meant to reply but the football seemed to take over my life at the time (still has).
