Look lads you can all slag about Europe and that but what us Irish men are angry about is because we live in the North of the Country and can expect them British C**ts to pull of a stunt like that (which they do regular) we certainly don't expect our fellow Irish men to put the boot in too, poor from RTE and a lot on here too.

You'll be looking to exclude us from the GAA next, maybe we should stop all GAA games in the North because we're not part of the setup ::)

That would just be because ye are ruining it :)

The reaction to this is all rather comical.

I look forward to maps of Europe in which the six northeastern counties of this island as well our neighbouring island do not exist from March 2019 on.

Why, is the north leaving Europe??
Is the north part of the Republic of Ireland?

Why would you show a map of Europe without the north??
Sorry, mate, the European Union, to be precise.

A political entity that the north will not be part of as and from March 2019.

Just as it isn't currently part of the Republic of Ireland.

Don't you hate it when Nordies are over sensitive?

http://www.independent.ie/sport/golf/bbc-tries-to-claim-irish-golfer-paul-dunne-as-british-31388129.html

The BBC have done it again, last week it was Conor McGregor, now it's Paul Dunne – the Irish amateur who has stunned the golf world by leading the British Open going into the final day.  The Irish amateur has not even won the tournament yet and already British sports pundits are trying to claim him as one of their own.

Ireland's latest sporting hero was lining up to take his tee shot on the 17th hole in St Andrew's after two British golfers hit out of bounds shortly beforehand, when Mark James commented that he did not want to see another British player hit three off the tee.  “We saw Eddie Pepperell come to grief here… so lets not have anymore British out of bounds,” he said

A UK columnist has come under fire after suggesting that Ireland is not a real country.
In her comment piece for todays UK Times, Melanie Philips talks about moves by Republicans in Northern Ireland and nationalists in Scotland to seek independence from the UK.

This is an outrage and I sympathise deeply with the widespread anguish and woe. If the results of a survey of life expectancy in Meath were presented in the form of a map of the area in which the survey was conducted (i.e. Meath) I can hardly imagine the dimensions of the injury, insult and affront it would represent. I would be forced to take drastic action. Fire and fury like the world has never seen. I might even go all the way and phone Joe Duffy.

No maps of Meath that don't show its place in Leinster. Ireland. Europe, feckit.

And there you go again, belittling the feelings of the northern Irish and making a joke of our nationalism. That's the attitude that is feeding Tony Fearon's separatist view.

We all know that the survey covered the 26 counties, but that is no excuse for cutting out the 6 counties. Unless of course, the person responsible had never heard of the Easter Rising nor the Troubles.

Emmm, no. Believe it or not, there are hundreds of thousands up north who tune into the Late Late Show every week. They also watch RTE news before the BBC news. They also support the Republic soccer team and wouldn't cross the road to watch NI play. Ask yourself why so many people of all ages and economic position still carry Irish passports and do not recognise the border.

Presuming that the people responsible for producing the Late Late show have got brains, then they would have to be very stupid or have absolutely no concept of Irish history to cut 6 counties out in the manner they did. I know that your comments are dripping with sarcasm but why would you not be offended at that. The minute I seen it, it got on my wick. Maybe it's something that only northern nationalists understand because what is more bizarre for me is RTE establishment cronies not realising the insult caused to residents in the 6 counties, or worse still deliberately doing it to get a reaction.

I agree with the lads from north of the wall here. There's no rationale for RTE cutting the 6 counties out of the picture, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was done deliberately. All they had to do, if they wanted to show just the area polled, was to include the six counties with a greyed out background or something to show it wasn't included in the numbers.

RTE are, without doubt, c***ts.
As long as they can make money from the North entering their weekly competition R.T.E.  won't give a shite
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

As a former Northern Nationalist I would ask those who still aspire to reunite with the South to consider even the events of recent days.We have Southern Government Ministers now saying that Arlene Foster's recent proposition (i.e. To get Stormont up and running immediately and have parallel time limited negotiations on culture/language) is reasonable and that SF should take this up.

Believe me when you see that you have been shafted so many times and recognise the futility of fantasies like an unobtainable United Ireland,that a vast majority both North and South rejects,you will not be upset by maps on the Late Late Show.

And this has precisely what to do with my post or with the 26-county survey and the presentation of its results? Or is the survey itself the problem? All surveys should be 32-county? You'd need to get a grip if you really are serious.

You're not, are you?

Let's hope that at least in the use of Weather Maps,RTÉ make Ireland a Nation Once Again.

Hardy,

Yes, I am serious. I reckon I'm a fairly laid back person but maps showing the six counties cut out does annoy me. It is even more disappointing that some people in the free state do not understand why it would upset us. This is not a case of "going out of our way to be offended". Plus, it is not just a few hardened republicans who cried foul.

No, we're not saying the survey should have been help in the 32 counties, but simply show all 32 counties with the northern grayed out.
