    I often wondered if Sean O'Casey deliberately named the pro British Character in the Plough and the Stars "Bessie Burgess" to piss off brugha's supporters.(Of course Rosie Redmond was a prostitute for the same reason perhaps).

    Brugha was the original Terminator. Can't be bargained with, can't be reasoned with, doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear and absolutely will not stop, ever....
