Don't think we have any Cork fans here.
Maybe one of the Kerry lads could pass on the message
If you were any use you'd be playing.

De Rebels boi.
Obviously stuff like Jim crow is not very well understood cois Laoi. And as for lynching they had Jack.

I don't believe that any Cork supporter flies the Confederate flag in support of White Supremacy. Let's not become slaves to political correctness. What next? Should the river Lee become the Lincoln?

Yeah but there was a big deal made about it and they shouldn't have done it.

They're Cork though and don't like being dictated to even though it's in bad form and they would have known the sensitivities around it!

I take it that this thread is only a pisstake.
I mean Cork were Rebels before Columbus got to America, never mind the American Civil War and all that craic.
All to do with Cork's support for Lambert Simnel, one of the pretenders to Henry VIII's throne back in 1487 or thereabouts.

Larry Cork are the Rebels but the confederate flag is certainly not of Cork. I never pass much remarks on it but I suppose in this day and age you shouldn't  use it given its connotations today.

Fly the Nazi flag, so. It's red and white isn't it? Anything else is "political correctness gone mad."

I sure hope the Swastika Laundry don't reopen and become sponsors of the Dublin Team

Get Boss Hogg on the case. He'll run those Cork White Supremacists out of town.

True but best to say sweet damn all. The langers have been waving Confederate flags for years but it was always meant to be a bit of craic. I don't know of any Cork person would use the flag to promote white supremacy in any shape or form.    Best let the fuss die down and get on with life- it's hard enough as it is without starting controversies about issues we have no control over.

No control over whether or not you carry a racist flag?

I agree entirely  That flag should never be flown but it has been in the past for years and years and very few if any muttered a word. It had the same connotations then as it has now. This is what sickens me about today's PC world. I hated it then and I hate it now despite any recent events. Come on Cork get rid of it.(and I know sometimes easier said than done.)

f**k people like to get offended by f**k all. I'm sure the millions of African-American langers were very upset by the Confederate flag at the game.  ::)
