The Northern Whag: Dyed in wool Republicans.

THE three amigos who got lost on the way to the Bogside and accidentally ended up in Bogota have finally returned to Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore.

Fortunately their journey wasn't completely wasted, as they were able to study the Colombian ''peace process'' at close hand, while also having time for: a spot of bird watching, learning how to salsa, the odd bit of ballistics training, and acting as ''cell bitches'' to members of the Cali cartel.

On the honest hombres return, however, attention seems to have focused on the eye catching coiffeur of Jim ''Mortar'' Monaghan (so called because of his proficiency on the building sites - no doubt?), whose formerly silver locks are now a lustrous ruby red (think Jonathan Ross' wife crossed with Milo O'Shea).

Fair play, though, to the Provie Scarlet Pimpernel who managed to fool countless police forces on his long and complex journey back to Ireland by disguising himself as a six foot tall match.

Now that's what I call thinking outside the box.
