Meanwhile, In Galway



Last night.

At the National University of Ireland Galway where Taoiseach Enda Kenny was attending a conference called Ireland 1916-2016: The Promise and Challenge of National Sovereignty.

    this island feeling more and more like a third rate dictatorship – as brexit & trump effect tightens its grip, expect increasing cases like this. nakedly political policing

      the whole world seems to be shifting towards a right-wing stance alright.. sure some of the irish reaction to trump winning is very in line with that, kenny congratulating him, pence getting invited to sligo, and doonbeg celebrating trumps win.. the numbers it seems, have always been there, they’re just all waking up now. scary times.

        Nail on the head here. I have this feeling that I have been living in a very sheltered naive place, wearing rose tinted glasses while the behaviour of bad people. “Sure they’re far away and we’ll never be like that here.” I think we are though it’s just that the circles I move me/follow on social media are not.

        I am a bit more worried for humanity today than I was two days ago. Evidence of jack booted thugs removing a student from a class for wearing a jumper is not helping me bury my head in the sand.

    Political policing at it’s finest here. That’s always been the case in Ireland. The Garda Siochana have always been political, always loyal to the ruling parties before loyalty to the state (i.e., the people).

    AGS is beyond reform. It’s needs to be complete dismantled and replaced with municipal police forces (Ulster/Connaught, Munster, Leinster and Dublin) and one national force for organised crimes and murders/kidnapping.

    Where was the aborted foetus filled water balloon being flung from the balcony?
    Students, no imagination these days.

      I agree. The least she could do is take a pooin the street and then smear it on a poster of Edna.

    Oh who cares. Wearing a Tshirt won’t bring on a referendum any quicker. The government knows that people would like a referendum and there will be one in time. Wearing your “repeal” shirt won’t make a difference and you’re just doing it to be cool. Same as all those people in America protesting against Trump when they should be protesting against each other or the people who voted for him or the system that created them that they voted for previously. Stop your crying, stop trying to be cool, wait for the referendum and wear your jumper then. I am utterly sick of Brexit, Trump, Repeal, blah blah blah. It’s a time to be cool on facebook whilst actually not knowing anything about how the world works, although, having said that, that’s really how facebook exists anyway. Be a SJW if you want but, ultimately, you’re wasting you time.

      Fierce mind reading powers you have there hats. As I cannot imagine any other scenario where you could derive someone’s motivation for wearing that jumper without having spoken to them or even being aware of who they are. Perhaps you should use these powers for good. Although by all means continue moaning on the internet about people moaning on the internet.

        Funny if someone was escorted away by Gardai I would have thought footage would have been up on this site already. All in favour of repealing the 8th but there’s a whiff of bullshit about this.
