Northern Ireland

;Williams Stacey, text on the back cover of the record "Songs of Tommy Makem" Tradition Records, TLP 1044. The song is interpreted as a parable of the British (United Kingdom) colonisation of Ireland and the current status of Northern Ireland. The four fields are the Provinces of Ireland with Ulster being the &quot;field&quot; that is still in British hands, the old woman a traditional personification of Ireland herself (see Kathleen Ni Houlihan). The words spoken by the woman in Makem's song are taken directly from "Cathleen ni Houlihan", an early play by W. B. Yeats. * Prevention of Terrorism Acts, passed between 1974 and 1989 to deal with terrorism in Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom *Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act, in India, 2002 After serving as Shadow Secretary from 1962, he became Secretary of State for Scotland in 1964 under Harold Wilson. The Conservatives (Conservative Party (UK)) held government from 1970 to 1974, when Ross resumed his position until he lost office when Wilson resigned in 1976. During his tenure he was responsible for the creation of the Highlands and Islands Development Board and the Scottish Development Agency, the forerunners of Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise. Ross campaigned for a "No" vote in the 1975 referendum (United Kingdom European Communities membership referendum, 1975) on British membership of the EEC (European Community). David Butler and Uwe Kitzinger, ''The 1975 Referendum'' (London: Macmillan, 1976), p. 179. He was also a firm unionist (Scottish unionist), in favour of Scotland and Northern Ireland remaining in the United Kingdom, and opposed devolution. Andrew Marr called him 'a stern-faced and authoritarian Presbyterian conservative (Conservatism) who ran the country (Scotland) like a personal fiefdom for Harold Wilson'. Ross coined the term 'Tartan Tories' to describe the members of the Scottish National Party, whom he very much disliked; he was himself nicknamed "the hammer of the Nats" for his many attacks on them. Atlantic convoys With the entry of the United States into World War II ''Buck'' continued to serve as a convoy escort, steaming from the seaports of the eastern United States to ports in Newfoundland, Iceland, Northern Ireland, North Africa (Africa), and the Caribbean. As a convoy escort warship, ''Buck'' screened ships from enemy attack, pursued unidentified surface and undewater contacts and shepherded merchantmen to keep them in formation while underway. History The FV603 Saracen was the armoured personnel carrier of Alvis' FV600 series. Besides the driver and commander, a squad of 8 soldiers plus a troop commander could be carried. Most models carried a small turret on the roof, carrying a Browning .30 machine gun (M1919 Browning machine gun). A .303 Bren gun (Bren light machine gun) could be mounted on an anti-aircraft ring-mount accessed through a roof hatch and there were ports on the sides through which troops could fire. Although removed from active service, it saw extensive use into the 1980s in Northern Ireland and was a familiar sight during "The Troubles". At times they even appeared on the streets of Hull (Kingston upon Hull), a less-hostile atmosphere for driver training in a city of similar appearance to Belfast, and only a few miles from the Army School of Mechanical Transport (Defence School of Transport). McNulty became a citizen of Ireland (Republic of Ireland) in 2003 at the age of 50. He was eligible to do so because his maternal grandmother was born in Ballymena in Northern Ireland. He explained that his reason for doing so was his concern that as a non-resident Zimbabwean it could take him up to two years to get his passport renewed if he lost it. He further explained at the 2009 British Seniors' Open that "Mr. Mugabe (Robert Mugabe) no longer wanted me as a Zimbabwean". Commentators elaborated that the farm that his family had been managing for 40-something years had been confiscated by the Mugabe regime. He currently lives in Sunningdale, England. A loyalist (Ulster loyalism) paramilitary group, the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), claimed responsibility for the bombings in 1993. The month before the bombings, it had its status as a proscribed organisation (List of designated terrorist organizations) in the United Kingdom lifted by Merlyn Rees, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. There are allegations, however, that British security forces colluded in the bombings. The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Justice (Oireachtas#Committees) called the attacks an act of international terrorism involving British security forces. RTÉ News – ''Call for probe of British link to 1974 bombs'' These allegations are contested by both the British Government (Government of the United Kingdom) and the UVF. The attacks occurred during the Ulster Workers' Council Strike, which was a general strike called by hard-line loyalists and unionists (Unionism in Ireland) in Northern Ireland, who were opposed to the moderates' Sunningdale Agreement and the short-lived Northern Ireland Assembly (Northern Ireland Assembly (1973)), that collapsed on 28 May. Specifically, the strikers opposed the sharing of political power with Irish nationalists (Irish nationalism), and the proposed greater role for the Republic of Ireland in the governance of Northern Ireland. At 18:00, after all of the dead and injured had been removed, Garda Síochána officers cordoned off the three bomb sites in Dublin. Fifteen minutes earlier, at 17:45, the orders were given to call out national cordons. These were aimed at preventing the bombers from crossing the border into Northern Ireland. Garda officers were sent to Connolly Station, Busaras, Dublin Airport, the B&I car ferry port, and the mail boat at Dun Laoghaire. At 18:28, the Dublin-Belfast train was stopped at Dundalk and searched by a team of 18 Gardaí led by an inspector.

The '''Old Bushmills Distillery''' is a distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is owned and operated by Diageo plc (Diageo), and is a popular tourist attraction, with around 110,000 visitors per year. According to the company, a distillery by this name was first recorded in 1743, although at the time it was "in the hands of smugglers" (in a quote attributed to Victorian whiskey journalist Alfred Barnard).

Mexico

Aztec priests in Mexico were also known to use the plant's hallucinogenic properties. (see ''Rivea corymbosa''). In 1938, Hull engaged in a famous dialog with Mexican (Mexico) Foreign Minister (Secretariat of Foreign Affairs (Mexico)) Eduardo Hay concerning the failure of Mexico to compensate Americans who lost farmlands during the Agrarian reforms of the late 1920s. He insisted that compensation must be "prompt, adequate and effective". Though the Mexican Constitution guaranteed compensation for expropriation or nationalization, nothing had yet been paid. While Hay admitted Mexico's responsibility, he replied that there is "no rule universally accepted in theory nor carried out in practice which makes obligatory the payment of immediate compensation..." The so-called "Hull formula" has been adopted in many
