This is how The Belfast Telegraph covered the story:

And this is how the local New York paper in the Queens’ district of Maspeth reported it:

It turns out that ‘Easter Rising Way’ consists of about a dozen or so steps linking one pavement to another, slightly higher one. The local paper, the Queens Ledger calls it a stairway or a municipal staircase.

Either way it ain’t exactly Fifth Avenue.

Pretty small potatoes for the Sinn Fein leader but perhaps appropriate given that following the shock defeat suffered by Hillary Clinton in the presidential election he and his party may find their political profile in Washington downsized as well.

And it will be interesting to see what sort of St Patrick’s Day celebrations the Trump people hold.
