    Yep. We should have left the bloodstains from 1916 there for future generations to muse on whilst chowing on a panini.

      And not a mention of the winos who basically live along that particular bank, leaving behind their mess of empty cans, bottles and piss and shit.

      But no, it’s the market that’s disrespecting history.

        Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
        Boom! Boom! Boom!
        BOOM! BOOM!

        Boom! Boom! Boom!

    To be fair: It is a bit sh!t thanks to the food stalls and tubby #nom merchants who attend. Most of whom are from startups and the public sector.

        And sure isn’t FF HQ only down the road! They ruined this country, and its pristine canal banks.

    It’s looking pretty grotty up around Portobello too. Mostly down to weeds.
    It’s called Summer.

    Pretty sure they’re having a go at the fact that the organisation overseeing all canals on the island of Ireland is based outside the Republic, where there could be people of a unionist background working to undermine the sacred ground upon which 1916 nutter hero blood was spilled.

      Wasn’t that the great dream of Easter 1916 – that Irishmen & women of all creeds could come together within the unifying matrix of petty bureaucracy?

        Exactly, that what I think is ironic about the message in the first place. Small-minded armchair republicans have smaller minds than even they themselves know!

    The casualties 240 were overwhelmingly British .. Using the same insane tactics used at the Somme . The IRA commander tried to communicate with the British Commanding Officer to stop marching his men into their guns .General Lowe ordering Mount St Bridge to taken at all costs and could easily flanked Republican positions by using Baggot St Bridge .

    I bumped into a lady putting up these posters a few weeks ago.
    Her main gripe was with the “North taking over our canals”.
    She was “mature” lady with obviously little else to be bothering her.

      You saw something unusual and you asked the person doing it a direct question about what was going on and you found out what it was about?

      What was that like?

          I think Mikey’s point is that you had the common sense to enquire, as opposed to taking a sneaky photo and then sending it to BS for an explanation?
