So I'd imagine they can take holidays and join in official celebrations when they "see fit" as well.

They can give extra holidays (at their expense) if they wish, I don't think too many would object to that - much like what some did for royal weddings but they can't enforce celebrations in the work place.

Stop pretending that being the GFA has anything to do with being in the EU.

Sovereign countries should be able to make their own arrangements, but Ireland is now a vassal of the EU and does what it is told.

Time for Ireland to stand up if they don't want their masters to impose a border.
Only a fool of a Unionist such as yourself would champion a UK crash-out of the EU.

A hard border will speed up the break up of the UK.

A hard border in Ireland with checkpoints, when there will be a voting majority of Nationalists and progressive foreigners in the 6 counties in just 36 months - coupled with a desire to be in the EU is manna from heaven for Patriotic Irish people north and south of the artificial partition line that divides our country.

The irony is that the imperial parliament passed an Act giving self rule to the island of Ireland with a parliament in Dublin in the 1912-14 period.

The problem was the imperial parliament did not implement that Act which was signed into law by the monarch.

Instead the imperial parliament drew a border across the island of Ireland.

All of nationalist Ireland had supported that Act.

That betrayal of democracy by the most powerful parliament in the world has had bad results on this island ever since.

When a line was drawn under all of that by the UK and the ROI signing the Belfast agreement Brexiteers have voted to tear it up.

Given that background the arrogance and contempt of the racist Brexiteers for the Irish has to be seen to be believed.
Historically correct - the Unionists brought the gun back into modern Irish politics.

The terrorist UVF were built around the sectarian OO lodges. Idiot Unionists who claimed to be loyal to Britain, smuggled German weapons into Ireland to do battle with the British army.

You couldn't make it up - hahahaha

Do you find a lot of "enforced" celebrations going on?

Lighten up. It'll be a day off, a few parades,I wouldn't get too excited.

I don't imagine they'll line up the Army like the Republic did for 1916.

What would they be celebrating .. the demise of the unionist majority in a statelet manufactured to ensure you always had one ..... SF probably the largest party and if not by then they soon will be ..... a border poll around the corner :whistle:

not much to celebrate there surely ;) .... maybe a clearing out / going away party would be a good theme :ROFLMAO:

Will you have a government to organize this in 2021?

Serious question.

Should the centenary celebrations of NI include a Nationalist perspective?

No truer words written - poor locationally challenged Unionists trapped in Ireland.

No flag to call their own - no anthem to call their own - no government to call their own - no majority to call their own - and best of all, no country to call their own.

Yeah, good times - let's celebrate!!!

Hahahahahahahahahaha

I can't see Sinn Fein going back into Stormont before the joke centenary of the 6 county abomination is over - why would they give credence to what was forced on us against the democratic will of the people of Ireland - especially on the centenary.

The Sinn Fein credibility is stretched enough as it is - it's core followers would not accept the party propping up the joke "statelet" on the joke centenary.

The same goes for political parties in the 'Southern Ireland' State. God help them if they are seen to celebrate the partition of our country.

No idea the the government in Stormont but there'll certainly be one in Westminster to do the heavy lifting and civil servants to impliment whatever is required?

What nationalist perspective do you want to see celebrated?

And Westminster will want to down tools and do the heavy lifting on this to the exclusion of all else?
What was I thinking, we'll put Karen Bradley in charge. What could possibly go wrong?
What flag will be flown at this celebration? What civil servants signs off on that? Who hires the bands and gives out the contracts for food and drink for the street parties?

A recognition of the fact that a significant proportion of the population were utterly terrorized and cut off from their country at the creation of NI and in the words of your former First Minister found NI a 'cold house' for a long period afterwards would be a start.

Westminster is not Stormont.

The real British in Britain pulled the plug on you Unionists and your sectarian cesspit of a "government" in 1972 - you squatters have never regained control of the north of Ireland since then.

The brits have been trying to hand back the occupied 6 counties to the Irish people ever since - the latest effort being the backstop.

Poor locationally challenged Unionists trapped in Ireland - it's only going to end one way for you foreigners, and very soon.

They fared infinitely better than their counterparts in the South.

The NI flag will fly and people will organise their own street events.

If you think haters of NI and it's population are going to stop 100th anniversary celebrations you are going to be sadly disappointed.

Did unionists try to stop 1916 celebrations?

Did anyone care what the unionists in the south thought?

"Northern Ireland to celebrate its 100th birthday"

I have not come across a single person mentioning this major date for unionism.

No plans have been made to mark this event?

How do you think this date should be dealt with at your place of work?

It was a pretty major date for you nationalists too.

You started your decades-long pouting.

Then: "we want nothing to do with this 6 county entity"

Now: "we were excluded from everything"

The truth is that you excluded yourselves.

You are included in the fun now though - but of course you will probably boycott it all, as usual.

Happy Birthday.
