IN his letter (April 29), Tom Cooper suggests we the people of Cork should have shunned the Rev Ian Paisley on his recent visit Cobh.
Mr Cooper suggests “this unrepentant bigot should be shunned like the political pygmy and religious hypocrite he is”.
This attitude is totally inconsiderate to the people of Northern Ireland and to the concessions Paisley has made which have led to peace and stability there. These are being applauded, deservedly, by the Irish people — be they from Belfast, Cork or Cobh.
Perhaps we, the majority as proven by the response to Sinn Féin in the last general election, should shun people of Mr Cooper’s ilk for displaying some of the extreme, intransigent views that he attributes to Dr Paisley.
