Yeah they mentioned that on the BBC news this evening too. Very embarrassing for Theresa May they said, having the tables turned on her like that - having Ireland help "British" women when their own government refuses.

It would be ironic if Donegal becomes the abortion capital of Ireland after voting no as a result of Northerners going there for one.

The inavailability of abortion and marriage equality in Northern Ireland makes nonsense of the Union. It’s bizarre that Unionists rail against a sea border in the Irish Sea while all the time preserving social and cultural borders with the Island of Britain.

Women from Northern Ireland may be able to have abortions in the Republic of Ireland once new laws are introduced there, the Irish prime minister has said.

Leo Varadkar said he could not see why women would be barred from crossing the border for such procedures when they are already allowed access to healthcare in the Irish Republic.

An Irish solution to an Irish problem?

Catholics going to Dublin, Drogheda or Letterkenny for their abortions, and Protestants going to England or Holland?

Dunno, seems a bit sectarian to me.

That'd make sense if the Northern Irish women have chosen to be a citizen of that state.

Irish people are Nationalists.

We don't consider west-brit lickspittles like you to be proper Irish people because you are traitors to your own.

There it is again.

At least you're up front about your views of non-Nationalists compared to a lot of the other iNats on here who talk a good game with their masks on.

There is nothing inevitable in this life at all. Ulster has problems of it's own without deciding on top of that to import alien destructive practices from Britain.

Nationalists are pretty uncommon in Ireland. There are no Nationalists who regularly post on the Nordie forum for instance.

Bollox, ratio
How on earth are you an Irish Nationalist when you support Brussel's rule?

Name me one Irish Nationalist who regularly posts on the Nordie forum?

All of the Tea Eggs who post regularly here support the EU.

If you mean by "non-Nationalists" Unionists - why not say Unionists???

You are not Irish - you do not speak for Ireland.
