General discussion / Re: Orange Order Museum in Belfast and Loughgall

Does anyone know if there is an native Irish equivalent (equal and opposite) to the Orange Order museum?

http://www.orangeheritage.co.uk/museum-schomberg-house/

Point of order: Why should one person's culture have an "opposite" somewhere else? What's the opposite of Chinese culture? What's the opposite of Egyptian culture?

Sad fact of life here. Problem is, if I take a bunch of tourists to the Orange Order Museum, then where would I get the alternative narrative?

The alternative is that I ignore the OO museum, and just go to the Ulster Museum and such.

Is this the opposite?

Or am I comparing apples and oranges?

There are people who have to work even when everyone else is told to stay indoors.

- Policemen
- Ambulance drivers
- Firemen
- Doctors
- Nurses

There were suggestions that community halls and leisure centres should have been catering for the homeless. Clearly the people who run the community centre would have to leave their own home to go to the community centre.

I'm sure that those who went swimming know fine well that there was no life guard on duty, and did it for the thrill. The same kind of thrill that motor cyclists yearn when racing around the Northwest or Tandradgee 100.

The whole question of insensitivity is exemplified by this story on an Ann Frank costume:

Was it insensitive or not?

Can I still wear a Nazi uniform ato a fancy dress party?

Had the misfortune of watching Liar on ITV. It started well, but then had a whole series of twists and turns that were unfathomable. Stupid ending too which set it up for a second series.

Well done Harps. You've had a long enough barren spell.

You're not predicting Harps to go all the way?

Not often you hear of a road death being talked of as a murder.
It seems strange.

That's what I thought as well. Obviously more to it but such a tragic loss for the family

Was there a second vehicle involved, or had someone tampered with the vehicle, or perhaps harmed her before she got into the car?

If he had been jailed there'd have been no complaints from me.No excuse for bad behaviour at any sports fixtures.Tarnishes the good name of the club.

The young lad acted the eejit at a soccer match while full of drink .  He looks a harmless craytur . 

Imposing  a custodial sentence on him would be pointless and wrong . 

The embarrassment is punishment enough.

Harmless craytur yes, but how much will his action cost Celtic Football Club? Could be a few pennies if they're made to play a home match in an empty stadium.

Dunphy is an ejit but I wouldn't pay too much attention to these comments

So is Trump. And look where he is now.

Sometimes it is better to call out the idiot before the unthinkable happens.
