Though it does not have as strong as presence on here as it has on Politics.ie and Boards.ie we still have some of contemporary "Liberal" Southern Irish Anti-Catholicism on here which is as rabid as anything you will find among Ulster's savage Prods though both less imaginative and thankfully at least so far less prone to violence. The Troubles I often feel freaked out the Southern Irish ruling class, or at least a very significant proportion of it, more than it did Unionist ruling class in Northern Ireland and certainly a lot more than it did the actually British one. One aspect of this was that we saw the rise of people such as Conor "Cruise" O'Brien and Mary Robinson putting forward the notion that Catholicism was a core problem driving the Troubles and especially in the case of the former adopting whole heartedly a Whig Freemasonic view of Irish history. How much is such carry on during the Troubles on the part of some Southerners to blame for contemporary completely head the ball Southern Irish Anti-Catholicism?
