Its funny to be giving credit to SF for peaceful protest, is that not whats expected when a political party opposes something ?
As for rose tinted, not really.
Its a potentially useful advertisement for the country, will hopefully boost tourism.
The fact that the head of the UK honoured those who died fighting for our country, visited Croke Park, the scene of a notorious atrocity committed by her forces, etc, may make it easier for her followers to take their little steps towards permanent peace.
And as for providing assistance to bereaved families, both sides have proved reluctant in this respect.
