Despite growing up in an old IRA household, I had a soft spot for Elizabeth – even though she was the Queen

Like many others, I have a soft spot for Queen Elizabeth II, although growing up in an old IRA household where being ‘pro-British’ or ‘a Shoneen’ was at its worst; The biggest disparagement to my maternal grandmother was “her father wasn’t an RIC man”.

Sadly she was dead when we discovered her own people, West Cork Presbyterians displayed proud RIC men, her descendant Charles Edward Tanner became Chief Inspector of the New Zealand Police, managed Elizabeth and Philip’s 1953 visit and made it on the Queen’s Birthday Honors List 1963 for Distinguished Service to “Her Majesty”.
