Lol I gave your order credit for approaching the 21st century in Fermanagh and you return to the seventeenth with more sectarian abuse.
If you ever grow up you'll realise why Nationalist communities both object to Orange marches in their areas and are able to run rings round you effortlessly.



It's become clear to me there is a split between the brethern, those who wish to remain in the dark ages and those who are willing to fast forward to 2016.

It is so apparent when you consider the mixed messages being pedalled about.

Scandalously the ROI government pumps a lot of money into the Orange Order- I suspect this is down to them demanding a quid pro quo from the Lodge. Obviously the type of hooker that BtB favours and the quality of cocaine he desires dont come cheap so he has been prepared to bend his flaunted "Principles" a little bit.
What's even worse is that the OO is a registered charity both south and north.

The Irish government gives them 900,000 a year and the OO have received around 15/16 million since the GFA. The OO give a few hundred to 'community projects' as a donation, then the use the money to ensure that border land doesn't fall into Catholic hands. That's bad, but hundreds of thousands of Irish taxpayers money is being 'donated' to British military veterans.

Currently, an overseerer of all Irish charities has been appointed. He has written to all of them to submit their books and activities for investigation. Only half have done so and continued failure to do so will revoke their registered charity status. As many as half are expected to lose this status.

Will the OO will retain its charity status under this scrutiny? As long as they and a few others continue to be registered as charities, I for one, will not give a cent to any charity ever again


The OO are on a charm offensive is all.

I visited the battle of the Boyne site at Oldbridge, Drogheda, a few years back, and learned that it was funded by the Irish government i.e. Irish tax-payers. I thought it a bit strange that the site of a battle which subjected Ireland to a further 231 years under the British crown was being paid for by people whose ancestors rejected British rule, and whose political orientation would most certainly not be British imperialist nor unionist.

The event in Dundonald was no charm offensive.

Why did you visit it? Because its part of our history and also impacted on European history through the victory of King Billy. If gob************************es like you had your way all we would have to look at his continous reruns of the Kilmichael Ambush

I was at the 1916 seminar in Christchurch, Dublin which Arlene Foster attended, and I listened to a podcast on the same subject in Christchurch, Waterford. The CofI seem to be doing good work in opening up the conversation.

It's a form of schizophrenia. Mervyn Gibson said during the week that the ban on Orange attendance at a Catholic mass should be looked at but said he wouldn't attend a service at Protestant St Anne's cathedral because of the appointment of a Catholic priest.

Yest, that is strange. But then, Irish people passing on their ancestors history is nothing new.. The OO now want to reinstate William of Orange on his plinth again. I think the IRA, just like Nelson, blew him off it.

When have we even had one re run of Kilmichael?

The Batitle of the Boyne site should have been turned into a land fill site. The vast majority of the OO reside in a foreign country, their do-called history should be no concern of ours.

Next question is why all offical/state/invitational commemorations on WW1 only take place in COI or othercProtestant churches in NI. Not one single NI Protestant politican attended a ROI state run event or official service in a RC church.

Why is this?

Which was your favourite Ra.
Its amazing how they surrendered when the SAS were brought in to give them a bit of their own medicine.

Yet when the SAS killed them, they cried about it, the big woosses and then they gave up on the auld united Ireland and decided to administer British rule at Stormont. The question must be why did youse waste so many innocent lives.
