These lads are free to pray where they want to and I'm not aware if anyone trying to censor them.
Mind you instead of blocking public space they could use any of the 5 or 6,000 Catholic Churches around the Country.

Fair enough, but in all truthfulness did they really cause an immense amount of disruption to the public?
         Kilkeel was for all intents and purposes closed of yesterday evening for an Orange March. Thats proper disruption for you.

Not a good day so far for the SDLP. As some have said (and as I've been saying for weeks) their tactic of attacking SF at every turn was just astonishingly naïve. SF voters should have been low hanging fruit for SDLP transfers but Colum Eastwood's strategy seemed to have been to turn SF voters off giving his party a transfer. Absolute lunacy. I've no doubt that them canvassing alongside a constant stream of FG/FG/Lab TDs did nothing to endear them to nationalist/republican voters. There's a healthy cynicism (to put it mildly) in northern nationalism for FF/FG/Lab TD's and their use/abuse of the north when it suits them and on social media it was fairly plain to be seen that parading a succession of these TDs around the doorsteps was another deeply misguided strategy. It'll be a major kick in the teeth for them to lose Nicola Mallon if that's how it turns out but I suspect their biggest cold sweat will be at the seeming collapse of their vote in South Down - one of their two traditional strongholds. Makes you suspect that they have another problem specific to that constituency - my own guess being that people in the area have been turned off by their former SDLP MP Margaret Richie now sitting in the house of lords and calling herself Barroness Ritchie.

Elsewhere, SF look like they will come through relatively happy - looking good to hold two seats in Foyle where many predicted a loss. Stephen Donnelly of Alliance seemingly polling well in West Tyrone which could come at the expense of SF's third seat, that of Maolíosa McHugh.

I think South Down is an interesting one.  SDLP support seems to have fallen off a cliff. Im not so sure its about Baroness Ritchie more a total collapse of the grassroots of the party in the constituency. A lot of the older candidates retired off and no ready younger replacements with any sort of profile. Added to that some bad decisions in candidate selections and vote management have damaged the SDLP badly.

Is this game on BBC NI??

No, deferred highlights.

Some of the “high profile” loyalist bloggers. There seems to be a new clown in town - some guy called Moore Holmes? He has appeared on Nolan and bbc radio this week saying loyalists are being censored as he speaks on the bbc   :o Some brains between them.

(Yeah some attitudes on here like it’s never over etc wrt vaccine passports. What do they say now. )
Moore seems to have styled himself as the front man for intellectual young loyalism but I'd say like the rest of them he hasn't 2 brain cells to rub together.
I had the misfortune of encountering this ballbag at university and you are correct. He didn’t try to hide his bigotry then either. Nothing has changed. He thinks he’s the dogs balls, everyone else rolls their eyes.

Ha!  I had the misfortune of encountering this ballbag at university.

That should be under his Twitter feed!  Great line

There is a probably a kernal of truth in that, but i'd say a tad optimistic. Putin is going to flatten Ukraine before its all over and by the looks of things draw NATO into the conflict.

Mick Lyons for me

Mick Lyons: no quarter asked nor given. Him and Liam Harnan were a ferocious combination.
