Revisionism at the GPO

Recommended Posts

Some years ago, the statue of Cú Chulainn in the GPO was moved from the floor of the lobby to one of the front windows. At the time, many people complained about this decision. For myself, I remember, as a boy, going into the GPO and standing in silence before the statue, remembering our Patriot Martyrs. It was a privilege to touch the foot of Cú Chulainn - so many thousands had done so, that this part of the statue was always shining bronze. This tactile contact was taken from us, when the statue was moved into the window. It was, of course, a time of vicious Revisionism, where all the icons of the Irish nation were being smashed and slandered. Taking this iconic statue away from the Irish people was part of that vicious campaign. However, the powers that be assured us that, in reality, despite how we might feel, moving the statue to the window was putting in a place of honour - where more people could see it. We always know that was a bullshít Revisionist lie.

And now, we see how right we were. In the next window to the statue of Cú Chulainn, sculpted to honour our National Heroes and Martyrs, we now see the spectacle of a fake Statue of Liberty holding a fake American Express Card.

This is what becomes of allowing our country to be mis-ruled by rats.
