General discussion / Re: Worthington wants anywhere but windsor
« on: July 29, 2007, 01:24:17 PM »
The "Ireland" team represents rugby in two countries (Irish Republic and United Kingdom), selecting players who are Irish or British.
You could look at it like that or
the IRFU present a team to represent the 4 provinces.
One is Ulster  a 9 county province which is represented by the Ulster Flag.

If you want to yap on endlessly about the GSTQ and Union Jack, It's backwood blinkers.
They have never and never will represent the population of NI
Scotland and Wales both in the UK, have their own assembly Flag and anthem, both never went through anything remotely close to what the entire population of NI has suffered.
Time to move on and let go of great granny's apron strings and come up with an anthem and flag that represents Ulster.
And a once and for all recognition of nationalist culture, gaelic culture, republican history, sport as an equal part of what constitutes Ulster.

"P.S. As for the presence of Willie John somehow legitimising these arrangements"
You obviously missed the irony by a country mile of my mentioning WJ McBride.

clear as mud? did you even read my post?
what was that about last year when ni players were asked to get uk passports?


Yes I did read your post.  You stated what you believed should happen.  Not what actually has or does happen.

NI players are no longer required to have UK passports.

True, after the IFA were dragged by their hair screaming (no surrender) to the head office.
All under the guise of needing clarification.

I'd love if it was Dublin next but only if there was a fair ticket distribution and pigs might fly.

Were there any donegal fans left to be insulted by the celebration :)

It feels like we have just arrived into the big time now.

It didn't sound as if Monaghan had to  put in anything more than legal tackles this time.

They got off to a flyer with an early goal, learnt some lesson after Tyrone.

I haven't forgotten when Donegal pulled a 4 point game out of the fire in injury time.

I'll wait for the whistle

The big man Corey is creating all the problems, catching the attention of the donegal backs and Freeman etc are getting space.

Another mon point from a foul on Hanratty
