    Óglaigh na h-Éireann?.

    The only Óglaigh in this country are the Irish Defence forces.

    Very original. I never heard that one before.

    One might facetiously ask "what armed campaign?"

    But it will be interesting to see where this goes because the situation has been begging for a new republican approach besides those which have/are failing.

    Doesn't seem like there would be a whole lot fundamentally between them and Eirigi ...

    Indeed, yet they seem considerably more active than Eirigi, especially in the north. Eirigi have not really gotten anywhere.

    I think people generally grasp the meaning. Let's not be pedantic. It adds nothing to the discussion.

    Not so. I also want to know what military campaign is being referred to. Perhaps it is a purely notional one.

    You could maybe ask the government. They, after all, have over sixty men locked up in Portlaoise for supposed paramilitary activity. Unless these men were simply locked up arbitrarily (which I suppose is a possibility) then there does seem to have been something going on.

    I said 'what military campaign' not 'what's a military campaign?'. Let's not be thick.

    I repeat, what campaign are you on about? I have not seen anything bar the odd revenge shooting or tame half arsed attempt at a bomb in the North in recent years.

    Really? It's [Óglaigh na h-Éireann] etched clearly on the late Martin Mc Guinness's headstone.
