The overt discrimination by the state drew therefore on both my religion as well as my colour and therefore made me, in their words, a Black Fenian****** as opposed to, ‘just being’ a plain Fenian ******.

In an online living diary I account both for those times and my now activism presently, which will be of special interest to those interested in the conflict in Ireland.
