Quote of the day

"The word patriotism has been used in many different ways by many different people down the years. Tragically this word is one of the most abused words in the English language.

"A perfectly laudable aspiration such as patriotism is robbed of its intrinsic value when it's allied to violence and death in pursuit of its objectives."

Canon Liam Stevenson at today's funeral mass for the murdered police-officer, Stephen Carroll.
