Cromwell is a hero on the monument to the Reformation

Letter to the editor
Letter to the editor

May I refer to the letter of Mr A C Thompson, Dungannon, Co Tyrone (‘There is no unionist hero worship of Cromwell,’ February 16)?

Mr Thompson states: “In all my seven and a half decades living in Northern Ireland I have never once heard a unionist or Protestant refer to Cromwell as their hero and role model.”

May I draw to the attention of Mr Thompson, and your general readership, that Oliver Cromwell is remembered and regarded as a Protestant hero on The International Monument to the Reformation in Geneva.

Mr Thompson obviously needs to create a wider circle of friends.
