"On one occasion it was announced that the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations support team in Nairobi would not authorize more food and water for [the UN Assistance Mission in Rwanda] because the requisition forms had not been filled out according to procedure and, anyway, UNAMIR was short of cash. Staff in Nairobi would seek advice from New York on Monday, but probably wouldn’t get an answer until Tuesday, as the contact person was going to be away. It might be Wednesday. [Canadian UNAMIR commander Major-General Roméo] Dallaire immediately stood up and bellowed, ‘Who the fuck are these people? Don’t they get it? The Interahamwe works on Sundays, and so do we.’"

"The Troubles were with you all the time. You felt them in your tummy 24 hours a day. I was a Catholic boy but I wanted people to be able to go to my fights and not feel any threat, just come together. I was in an out of conflict areas, amongst tricolours, Union flags, murals… the Shankill Working Men’s club, Gerry Storey’s club in the New Lodge. My father sang Danny Boy before my title fights because it was a song that belonged to everyone. Cynics said it was a commercial decision but that was a load of bollocks. I think we had an incredible effect."Barry McGuigan 1961- Featherweight boxing champion

‘I had a son, he died last year. When he reached a certain age he was telling me, why? How can you explain to him? Well he knew. I did tell him when he was 12 that he was HIV positive. But then you know its like ‘mum, where did I get it from?’ ‘Ah, from me!’ and it was really painful. I love you so much my son – I am sorry, I didn’t want, I didn’t want you to be sick, and its not only sick, its bad. Can you imagine?’
