        plus Kevin Myers, Liam Kennedy, Eunan O’Halpin, George Hook, Eoghan Harris. Jesus, it could be a 40 coach convoy.

          A decision’s been made to send Simon
          To the commemeration in Norn Iron.
          Between me and you
          I’d propose Mary Lou
          Don’t ya know for this trip, she’s been pinin’ ?

            Who should be sent on the mission
            To celebrate this country‘s partition?
            Simon C said he’d go
            After Michael D said No –
            I’d rather drink some cans and go fishin’

    Free mini Union Jack fleg with every ticket.

    Fine Gael manifesto:

    Step 1: Attend commemoration of worst decision ever made for Ireland
    Step 2: Re-join the commonwealth
    Step 3. appoint Charlie as our new President

    Shades of another FGer insulting a decision our President. The only thing missing is the Thundering Disgrace soundtrack.

      Ah, GiggidyGoo, that takes me back, Donegan V Hillery, wasn’t it, a heavyweight eliminator.

    Hurray. Well done Fine Gael! Add another 10 points to SF’s lead with a pathetic sop to the SINDO-reading gammon and aul’ wans of the middle class.

    Still, while he’s out of the jurisdiction he can’t pull any new jobs out of his arse & bestow them upon the nearest witch. I’m sure, nevertheless, he’ll engineer some method of humiliating the gormless Meehole Martin, while he’s up there, which Meehole will somehow construe as a compliment or something. I suppose closing the border while….no, oh well.

    Fair play to President Higgins for declining the invitation to “celebrate” in a religious ordeal in Armagh. I was in Ireland when he announced his declination, from The Vatican following an audience with Pope Francis – it couldn’t have been scripted better. His invitation was addressed to Michael D. Higgins, President of The Republic of Ireland, he’s The President of Ireland, as he pointed out. The Irish Government should follow The President’s lead and not attend, in my opinion.
    Years and years of torture, cruelty, discrimination, surveillance from “The State” should be celebrated – I find it abhorrent.
    The North of Ireland has nothing to celebrate this year, apart from, of course – Tyrone, All-Ireland Champions! Yay!
