It’s upside down!

An Post, Newcastle, Galway this morning.

Not exactly the GPO.

In fairness.

          The flag of St George is the butcher apron, not the union fleg, atleast thats what I’m told by our celtic brethen in Britain.
          Of course through most its history Irish people stood, generally willingly, beneath that flag

    I guess not the nicest house I’ve ever seen, but thanks for posting the photo, anyhow.

    Looks wrong. If it were a French, US, Spanish or Italian flag, it would not be so jarring. It’s hard to treat it as just another flag if you’ve ever been in the North around July 12th.

      Even if they ‘softened’ the impact with a Tricolour alongside it wouldn’t seem as in your face…it is a fool who thinks there is nothing jarring about it

      I wonder if there were a Unionist (British) party to run in the South what type of support would they get – I think I would be surprised that I would be surprised that there are a lot of british unionists in the South

    Eh, it’s the right way if you’re inside the post office!

      I take it all views are his own and he doesn’t represent his employer, An Post?

        You could probably get him to give you domestic rates for letters to England though.

    I’m glad the tradition of the craven Irish person kowtowing to their betters isn’t dead.

      I’m right off the chortle-omoter here. Way past chuckles and bound for titters. Sniggers a faint memory.

      FFS, some people like the celebrities, including members of the UK’s royal families. Wouldn’t be my cup of tea, but I don’t lose any sleep over people liking things that I don’t particularly care for.

    I have no problem with Royals visiting here, I even encourage it as progress, but Jeebus why would you do that?

        In similar sufferin’ to Dublin four years ago, I hope every bin, balcony and grassy knoll has a pair of po-lice.

      I feel like Albert Brooks’s character in Broadcast News: “I say it here, it comes out there.”

    Could they not get the advise of the tons of Brits in Trinity College on which end was up? You know the ones – the ones over here from the UK availing of free fees and taking up the seats in Starbucks in Dawson Street.
