A DUP councillor has questioned why St Patrick's Day celebrations in Strabane have to have an Irish language title.

DUP hits out at name of Ceoil, Craic agus Carnival in Tyrone - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk

Does he want Irish speakers to only use "English" when talking about the saint?


Recently one of those dunderheads took time out to ring the BBC during a St. Patrick's Day discussion pointing out Patrick was a British Saint...........,..I sh1t you not folks.:lol:

You also get the twits complaining that a GAA club name is in Irish. Inis Ceithleann is a completely different place form Enniskillen .

Objecting to the "Merry Christmas" signs done it for me McS........I simply had to read the objections again to confirm what I had just read.


Truly unbelievable sh1t sir.

What sort of a multi language sentence is that?
Ceoil and Agus are Irish,
Carnival is Latin/Italian and
Craic is English, corrupted to look like it is Irish.

FYI: A lot of Irish people spoke Latin as a second language.

As long as it rubs the DUP up the wrong way than good.


Indeed sir and in a Direct Rule scenario, you will have the British opposition parties in Westminster asking the British Direct Rule Ministers about the multiple financial scandals and the DUP links to loyalist paramilitaries and the government's links to their DUP pals who are keeping them in power.

All good, hopefully convictions follow any investigations.

"Why do they need an Irish title on the festival when it is to do with St Patrick when everyone already knows St Patrick is Irish?"

Quit the politics Drew and make a fortune in comedy!
Just showed a few Canadians and Yanks this and they're laughing their legs off at it. :lol:

Many if not most of the words in your post are of Latin or Greek origin, "corrupted" to make them look like English.

"There is a concern when we're looking at the issue of St Patrick's Day," she said.
"Irishness is celebrated everywhere else on the globe, except Belfast - that's an issue that needs to be talked about."

Belfast councillors clash over St Patrick's Day event - BBC News

Their was/is a St Patricks day parade in Tyrone in which the Unionists insist that no national flags should be flown. Then on the day they cannot have the illegal Union jacks flying from public property taken down. Beyond a joke.

National flags are flown on many public buildings in Northern Ireland on St Patrick’s Day. The national flag even includes St Patrick’s Cross. Cool, eh?

Most Irish don't recognise that part of the union flag sorry nice try. It's seen as a colonial relic makey uppey symbol with no cultural value for non unionists.

Try harder.
