Now now Mick posting before reading the memo has got ye in trouble before...

Heard that gig is now being held in the Phoenix park. I blame the croke park residents for the switch.

Strange that given how the events of this week 30 years ago involved Casement Park, that SF aren't holding any commemorative events there.

Is the Orange Order STILL letting the entire Belfast UVF leadership stand on the balcony of Clifton Street Orange Hall to 'observe' local Nationalists walking by?

They were taking pics, which, according to Brit law was gaining information useful to terrorists within onionism, they all should have been placed under lock and key, film seized and the OO held to account, which they facilitated.......... through the legal process of course.

Croke Park. much too small dunder for such an event, SFA to do with residents.
According to tv news, he's now doing two gigs, one in Croker and one in the Phoenix park. Touch of Garth Brooks about him.

Tis an OP on a valid subject, the fact that ye can't deal with that tis merely validation of that reality...

But given the above event and Shin flakes involvement and support...



Surely some clarification on the rules of non party politics tis required?...

answers from the GAA over the event staged at Michael Davitts GAC - which has received more than £1.3m in funding from the Lottery and Belfast City Council - on the Falls Road.

"I think it is only right that the GAA clarify for the benefit of the wider community if they believe the hosting of events which glorify the actions of the IRA should be held on their premises," he said.

"Failing to rid the GAA of this baggage will undoubtedly put the spotlight on GAA sponsors and the award of public funding and other funding to GAA clubs who host events like this on their premises."

"The GAA should state clearly that events glorifying terrorism have no place on club premises."

A flyer advertising the event hosted by veteran republican Joe Austin was posted on the club's Facebook page on March 2.

In a statement, Ulster GAA said: "The GAA is a non-party political organisation.

"This is specified in the rules of the GAA and any breaches of rules are treated seriously and may incur suspension."


Now that statement would suggest some action will be taken, such as waiting until tis no longer news and doing nathing...


Happy anniversary!

BTB:

Did you see the usual statement that the GAA trots out when such things are pointed out to them?

In a statement, Ulster GAA said: "The GAA is a non-party political organisation.

"This is specified in the rules of the GAA and any breaches of rules are treated seriously and may incur suspension."



A non-party political organisation?

They always hang their hat on that, as though not endorsing any specific political party is the end of any discussion. They are still an organisation that supports Irish nationalism.

In this case however they've ignored the fact that Sinn Fein's name is included in the advertising.

Slap it up them.

Here horse moi will decide what questions moi asks, such as do you think Shin flake continued usage of GAA facilities to commemorate PIRA is in contravention of both the GAA rules and the claims to be welcoming to all sides of the community?...

Maybe for balance Sinn Fein could have invited some members of the SAS, and the Gibraltar police, and the Spanish police to the event. Or even some European to explain the conclusion of the ECtHR that the killings of the 3 PIRA terrorists were not illegal.

If they wanted a balanced view of the events of the time that is, as opposed to the biased Shinner view.

Sinn Fein advertised the event- does not mean that Sinn Fein booked the club or ran that event-
No other entity is named on the poster, other than Sinn Fein.

So if they didn't run the event or book the club then who did?

Have you tried to book band practice in a GAC? Should Sinn Féin abandon the hardliners altogether for a more extreme party to pick up?
