If Nationalists want to represent NI at the Commonwealth Games let them at it I say. Who is Fear or anyone else that matter to dictate what "nationalist" means?

It's not a zero sum game as can be seen from the polls in NI, the sectarian divide has become more of a spectrum and just because someone represents NI in sport doesn't stop them voting for SF or wanting a United Ireland no matter how much Fear seems to want that to be the case!

Or going to Westminster I presume based on that logic. Hi I am happy for people wave their wee shitty crown flags, meet the queen ,pay homage to the old slave masters, recognise NI as an independent country within the commonwealth, carry the queens baton etc.

Its just not for me. Im Irish you see, not northern irish

I struggle with the entity that is deemed Northern Ireland myself, I've no grŠ for it, but if others do want to compete in the Empire games for the betterment of their career then I'd say fire away.

I'll be cheering on Ciara Mageean this weekend but if she does get on the rostrum and they fly that "Ulster Banner" that was discarded in 1972 then I'm going to wind her Da and uncle up something awful.  ;D

Great ride by Darren Rafferty in the Time trial, Top 10 is some achievement for him and a lot more to come from that fella. Watched him win the PJ Logan Cup race out near Coalisland  only last year or the year b4.
