    “With the help of the holy mother of God,” he says, Ireland’s empty harbours will fill with vessels and the first Irish battleship will breast the waves and fly “our own” flag. “None of your Henry Tudor’s harps, no, the oldest flag afloat, the flag of the province of Desmond and Thomond, three crowns on a blue field, the three sons of Milesius.”

    And proper order too!!!
