Afternoon all, I have been a long time reader of the forum and it is clear that a hefty number on here served on Op Banner and also there are quite a few NI users here. I really hope this doesn't get shot down in a hail of insults. As someone who is proud to be from Northern Ireland I was saddened and downright embarrassed to watch as yet another summer in Belfast has seen such unrest and disorder. I have deiced to make a basic proboards forum, aimed at being a community-driven platform for the people of Northern Ireland. I want to try (even in a small way) bring together people from all sides of the conflict and attempt to promote greater understanding, reduce community divisions and push the issue of inter-community development. It is very early days of the forum and anyone interested in helping out can you please visit and join http://peaceinni.freeforums.net It really would be very much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
