All Irish catholics protestants fight like believing in leprechauns by Jerry l. Allegood morning news staff writer people in the United states May be developing another myth about the country of Ireland. For according to one irishman visiting the pee Dee the idea that All roman catholics and protestants in the Island country Are fiercely bailing each other has As much believability As the existence of leprechauns.

Kern a Presb Tyrian minister from Belfast Ireland is visiting in the Mars Bluff Community with relatives for a few Days and he casts a different Light onto the reports of conflict Between the two religious groups in his Home City.

The riots have effected the established churches in one Way because Many evening services in the riot District have been cancelled. He said Overall however the churches have not been affected. Perhaps the greatest Impact of the conflict comes in the attitude of youth toward religion in general.

This is because politicians have always tried to use religion to their own the Rev. Or. Reid explains. This is the first trip to the United states for the Rev. Or. Reid and his family.
