Symbolic step of peace at Irish stadium

England and Ireland faced off at Croke Park on February 24, 87 years after Bloody Sunday marked the stadium's place in Irish history. "The match is hugely symbolic, but these kinds of political gestures can create no-win situations," says Prof. Mike Cronin of Boston College's Centre For Irish Programmes in Dublin. "On one hand you are accused of dragging politics into sport and on the other criticized for taking 87 years to make an apology." More from the Christian Science Monitor.
