"Belinda---- Yes, it does open up that right. In fact, a pagan march already does have the right to ban someone from marching with rosary beads in a pagan parade etc. Yes, those arguments from the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human…"

Mark Connor replied to Gerry Regan's discussion Irish-Operated Carriage Horses -- A Stroll in the Park or Slave Labor?
"Of course the horses should be treated humanely, but to say treating them humanely is to ban the use of them at all is ridiculous. They're not human beings, they're horses. There should be some sensibly determined standards, but to ban…"

"Just two cents worth of input. From 1992 to around 2008 I helped put on a Ceili every St. Patrick's day in St. Paul, Minnesota with a group called Minnesotans for a United Ireland. Not a drop of alcohol was present and there'd be 500 or so…"

Failte Mark.  Are you Irish born or do you have an ancestral story of immigration to share with us?  Belinda :)

Mark, everyone, here's a list of Mark's work for us available on the new platform: http://thenewwildgeese.com/main/search/search?q=Mark+Connor

When you get a chance, Mark, lay out some of your passions for us here, including your website focused on the nexus between boxing and literature, and of course, the great accomplishments of the Irish worldwide in the ring.

We've got at least two stories by Mark on WG. Here are the links:

'Irish Thunder' biographer discusses Micky Ward's fall, rise, 'Irish' brand

and ‘A Chilling Effect on Oral History in This Country’: Q&A With ‘Belfast Project’ Director Ed Moloney

http://thenewwildgeese.com/profiles/blogs/a-chilling-effect-on-oral-history-in-this-country-q-a-with, which is perhaps the most widely read and discussed feature The Wild Geese has ever produced.
