An update on the forced West-Belfastisation of Dublin 7. This recruiting drive (above) was brought to you by the good people in Republican Cabra (brought to you by SF [brought to you by you-know-who] )

Fight!

    “West-Belfastisation of Dublin 7”, jaysus it’s either that or “West-Britainisation” of Dublin 4.
    Might as well torch both places and start anew..

    A few pictures and a bit of colour put up to remember one of the most important days in Irish history. What’s the problem?
    The brits are gone, don’t worry, I don’t think it’ll be shelled.

        I love being annoyed, more so than a whinge. Being annoyed is great. So many idiots out there to use for material.

    God, some people have little to be complaining about.

    Fair play.

    I live in leafy Rathfarnham and we have Irish Republic, Tricolour and Four Provinces flags up throughout the area and everyone seems to like it.

    Some Irish people will always be ashamed of associating themselves with 1916 as if it’s only for the working class Gaelic Irish. They don’t understand the true meaning of a Republic (nothing to do with the IRA).

    Sounds like a Dublin 7 resident who couldn’t afford Dublin 6.

      Let’s not forget the Protestant working class as well. A non sectarian republic tracing it’s lineage to 1798 and all that

        Wolfe Tone almost did it.

        One reason for the NI troubles was because the original civil rights campaign involved the working class of both Protestants and Catholics coming together. The merchant class divided them to weaken their cause. The IRA also got involved in a big way following Bloody Sunday and the rest we all know.

        It was essentially a class war. In time to come, that will become the overriding understanding of what happened in NI.

          Those posters and the people behind them don’t tend to agree with that. Also your language says it too. Words matter.

          It’s far easier to brand “them” as been British or Irish. I can’t wait for the NI current oligopoly to collapse and leave it as a duopoly. It’s be a bit harder for the DUP and Sinn Fein to blame others for their own actions then.
