Bronte and the IRA

I was at the British Car Day at Bronte Park (just slighlty west of 
Toronto).  At noon there was a few minutes of silence for those who 
perished in the WTC disaster.  They played Amazing Grace on bagpipes.

After this solemn and stirring event a soft spoken Irishman told me one of 
his family had been killed in an IRA typically senseless and brutally 
indiscriminate bombing.  He said it was ironic to remember that the IRA 
used to get large donations from the New York community, in particular 
those of Irish descent, and that the NYPD had a large number of people of 
Irish descent.  I have no idea if he is correct - but I do remember a 
member of the IRA being interviewed on TV about his donation collection 
visit to New York.
