You really do bring stupid to the next level.
“One of the key issues for sure was the feeling of a new sectarianism in the nationalist and republican community, where it is difficult to say in public that you are a practising Catholic, attend mass and are raising your children as Catholics.”

Totally different party.


That SF had Christian values.

Like the Dutch Catholic party.


The current SF hate Christianity.
the people of Ireland voted to abolish the 8th. I did not. The people of Ireland voted for Gay marriage also.

Do you not understand the difference bet ween England and the UK either?
England dominates the UK. It dominates the Union. That is a fact. The capital of England , London, is the capital of the UK too. The English language is used- not Welsh, Scots Gaelic or Irish or French. An English woman, Theresa May is P.M, another English woman is the Queen.
So you are the one who is silly.
In what respect are N.I unionists different to English ??

PBP voter is just a Troll. Who makes up stories as he goes along. He called the people of Tallaght - "scum" if I remember rightly. Some socialist he is.

Fair enough.

It's why SF and all parties should have a free vote on abortion.

True enough, but I wasn't talking about domination.

People were saying that Ireland is either the same as England, or is part of England. Neither is correct.

Ireland in 1916 was part of England. It was similar to the way say Alabama is to the USA. It was identical to England:
same language, same Parliment, same Army, same currency, same legal system, same sports, same culture.
the only difference was religion really, Southern Ireland was Catholic, N.I was Protestant.
There was Gaelic games and also Gaelic language and music, but they were not widely used.

We had the same currency till 79.
The European Exchange Rate Mechanism finally broke the one-for-one link that existed between the Irish pound and the pound sterling; by 30 March 1979 an exchange rate was introduced

No - Ireland in 1916 was part of the UK (United Kingdom).

It was not "similar to the way say Alabama is to the USA". At the time there was no state called England, and even if there had been, Ireland would not have been part of it. Ireland was part of the UK, not part of England.

To be consistent you should have said that "it was similar to the way say Alabama is part of New York" which shows that your position is stupid. Both Alabama and New York are parts of the USA, just as Ireland and England were parts of the UK.

Those Sinn Fein people were stupid. Just like you.

Nobody ever claimed that Ireland was part of England. Except these idiot Shinners.

MPs were elected to the UK's parliament. There was, and still is, no separate English parliament.
So says an ignorant and arrogant english Troll attempting to "LORD" over us Irish in an Irish history forum on an Irish centric website.

You are a pathetic fool - roll on the day when my country Ireland, gets rid of the parasite that is your country, england.

England's phony UK is dying the way its empire did - the people of Ireland never wanted it. Our country was shanghaied into your cesspit of a political entity. We voted out in 1918 and english scumbags like you waged a war against us - but democracy will prevail, and we will have our country back and very soon.

You are a silly N.I Loyalist who should not comment on things you do not know about. Slán

Ironically Sinn Fein no longer believe in the Independence of Ireland


They now think we should be part of another Union


- the European Union.

1/ Well that is not true.

2/ Well that's not true either - as far as I know SF warned the Irish public about the true nature of the European project before the 'Southern Ireland' State and the northern Ireland statelet even joined.
