    “Lansdowne Road Nua”

    Give us a break. Are those who think they are refusing to bow to the corporate man not aware that Landsdowne Rd is named after William Petty (petty you say?), a British Prime Minister in the 1780’s.

    British PM’s are not known for their general soundness to the Irish around this time.

    Long live the Aviva. Or Coca Cola. Or Tayto. Or whatever they want to call it.

      +2014 – 100% behind you Harchibald. Rename the road after a patriot, Thomas Davis comes to mind, not the name chosen by the oppressor.

      Blah blah blah. You know William Petty was Dublin born yea? He also came to power at the same time as Grattan’s Parliament was formed, so keep your anti English bias to a minimum on this one if you please. F**k the corporate sheep, long live Lansdowne.

        I do believe I said British PM. Not English PM. The Scottish would be dreadfully offended.

        And, yes, I do know he was Dublin born. But he hardly rose through the ranks from the slums of Thomas Street now did he?

          To which I would argue the contrary. William Petty came to power at the same time as Grattan’s Parliament, at time of great progress for the representation of Irish Catholics in the political sphere.

            Why not rename it Petty Road? How much did Petty achieve between 4 July 1782 – 2 April 1783?

            I remember 1829 being the end of the Penal Laws.

            Let’s not pretend any of these gentlemen did anything significant for the ordinary people of Ireland.
