This afternoon.

Kilmainham Hospital, Dublin

Members of the Moscow State Circus rehearse a themed parade involving defiant tricolours and Russian flags.

The circus opens today until September 16.

A perfect cover for spying/interfering in our elections, it must be said.

Won’t be attending in person but will watch it in TV like Royal Wedding just to check out the dresses and hats on stage

Easily confused? Or very handy? Ireland vs India cricket @ Malahide
India declares 208 for 5. Glad our friends brought the weather…

The defiant tricolour is not an easy look to pull off, particularly in the Royal enclosure, so green straw hats off to Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester for wearing our flag so well…

Needs less orange.


The nets at St Paul’s GAA Club in Lurgan, Craigavon, Northern Ireland

UUP MLA Doug Beattie had hit out at St Paul’s Gaelic Football Club for changing their netting to “depict the Irish Tricolour” and in doing so “marking out territory”.

The club has now defended their new nets, re-iterating that they – along with the club’s new stand – are in keeping with the club’s colours.

The Irish tricolour turns 170 on March 17

It’s a hundred and seventy years old
And a marvelous thing to behold
So hoist it to great height
But please get it right
The third bar is orange, not gold.

Could be Indian flag colours (saffron, white and green) or they’re getting ready for St Patrick’s day…

We may never now.
