The GAA is a somewhat tumultuous organisation that has clubs named after IRA terrorists but has barred the flying of the Palestinian flag from it's grounds, there is little doubt that the GAA has a broad membership that does not reflect the insular nature of it's Constitution and Terrorist Influenced Clubs.


So on Sunday there was another visitor to the Clones stadium in Arlene Foster. If she can be tolerant of the Nasty element in the GAA, is there any reason why a Nationalist Politician couldn't attend the Twelfth Celebrations in an act of the spirit of Arlene?

Not only was Snarlene at the GAA match - but he was standing to attention and humming along to his little hearts content amhrán na bhfiann no less, the NATIONAL anthem of the country he is squatting in, IRELAND. A Republican song as well, Hahahaha

Great to see Unionism in Ireland being brought to its knees - and in such a public manner!

Never-never-never - NO SURRENDER!

Hahahaha.

Stylistic note, Craigmore: putting daft statements such as 'Terrorist Influenced Clubs' and 'Nasty' in capitals doesn't make them true.

Would a Nationalist politician be welcome at a Twelfth demonstration? Arlene got a round of applause in Clones - what could Michelle O'Neill expect if she fetched up on the Shankill?

Could you clarify what in those links makes the GAA club connected to one of the physical force republican movements?
There are roughly 2,400 GAA clubs on the entire island. He's found circa 15 that have named competitions and grounds etc after RA members.

The levels of snowflake hysteria, amongst these lads, on GAA matters is epic .

The Orange Order does ban Catholics from membership-

Loads of nationalist politicians attend the 12th.

Frankly every DUP, UUP politician who supports it makes a UI more likely.

No. Lets be clear here, the 12th celebrates the near destruction of the Irish nation. Why would any Irishperson join in your celebration of such an event?

What I do not understand is why an orange man objects to people remembering people who took to the gun during the troubles.

Bonfires can be fairly dangerous. In West Dublin we try and keep them to a minimum. They emit toxic fumes and also scar the grass and ground. They can keep burning for a long time too.
Regarding the O.O, when they lift their ban on Catholics, then you will see Michelle O Neill attending. She will also visit the Orange museum- no problem there.

Your mate in Ballycastle got arrested when he tried to start a row at the parade didn't he?
