As we watched the military display of the Irish State; commemorating Easter Sunday 1916, presided over by Michael D Higgins, the Supreme Commander of the Defence Forces, at 9am on Easter Sunday in Shannon Airport, a United States Navy Lockheed C-130T Hercules was protected by Irish Gardaí and Army personnel.
Were we celebrating our independent and sovereign state, or our submission to the United States of America?
