Plan B for Willie?

The Irish flag only flies over Leinster House when Dail Eireann is in session. Unfortunately for Willie Frazer, the Dail is not currently in session, therefore Willie Frazer will be asking for the removal of a flag that's already down. Nice one Willie.

We wouldn't want his journey to be a complete waste, so what other buildings can he protest around this neck of the woods?

Well there's Dublin City Hall. Surely a more logical comparison with Belfast City Hall is Dublin City Hall? Unfortunately for Willie, the tricolour doesn't fly over Dublin's City Hall either. The flag I use as my avatar does. So scratch that.

Then there's Dublin City Council, which has its headquarters in a big building overlooking Wood Quay. The tricolour does fly over it, but then again, a Union flag is currently fluttering in the wind at its main entrance too. D'oh!

Poor Willie. Perhaps the Dail custodians might agree to raise the flag in order for him to demand that it's lowered again. Hands across the border and all that.

I notice the Irish flag, albeit in a tatty state, flying in some Dublin housing states. I also recall the amount of tricolours thrown on the ground after the World cup. can the unionists disrespect the flag any more than ourselves?

he was on the radio today and he will not be marching through the streets of Dublin. it will be a brief affair.

How many "states" are there in Dublin.
Do they have their own flegs?

In fairness these Willie threads are getting a bit tiresome. Better to ignore the village idiot and focus on something with more substance. I certainly hope no one gives him any publicity when he's in Dublin making a tit of himself.

I hope this protest is just ignored. These lads are entitled to Irish citizenship too. Obviously they wouldn't be claiming it, but hopefully they'll be allowed hold their protest, peacefully, and then head on up the road.

You need to ask yourself sir..........are fascists capable of holding a peaceful protest.

That's what was said six years ago and look how that turned out.

It's true for you squire... Hopefully cool heads will prevail! However, any damage caused to public property, nut them, any intimidation to the public, nut them... Escort them to the local Garda Station...

Now when I say "nut them" I mean the loyalist protesters and any vigilante, would be he-men that decide to stick their nose in. Keep it peaceful, boring and without headlines!

Again, they aren't there to be peaceful. This was shown vividly six years ago.

The RSF crowd didn't exactly do themselves, or Dublin for that matter any favours. I wouldn't be surprised if the same old shyte kicked off again. The more I think about it the more I feel Frazer should be barred from setting foot in the Republic. Britain does this frequently with radical imams under anti terror legislation. I'm sure the Irish government could do the same.

This proposed march is lunacy. It's what I'd expect from 8 year old boys. This is not in my name

I agree. Any potential trouble should be prevented at the border. And there is potential trouble in this one if republican splinter groups decide to get involved. I don;t think it will be banned though, this govt under Kenny is determined to show the world that we are big and mature and can handle any situation ( don't mention promissory notes and bank debts).

Or don't mention peaceful students on a sleep out protest either, they would be a major threat to public order and we can't have that can we? But Wee Willies gang on a jolly? Well that's just fine!

He is entitled to Irish citizenship. He can hardly be banished from the state?
But he's not currently an Irish citizen, therefore he has no particular right to enter the state. He's a sh!t stirring trouble maker. The border is there, may as well make use of it for a change.
