When the OO issues statements
condemning the placing of their neighbours' National flag on illegal bonfires,
Condemning burning photos of their neighbours' political representatives on illegal bonfires
Condemning bands who take part in their parades playing offensive
music outside Catholic Churches 
Condemning the louts who attach themselves to Orange parades
And requesting that all of the above disgraceful activities cease.
Telling us they've terminated the membership of the terrorist who drove a car into a crowd of people

I might well start to view them somewhat more favourably.
Until then I will hold the view that the OO is a bigoted anti Catholic organisation and reasonably prejudicially believe that obviously the males who belong to it must share those views.
Fixed that there for you.

A further revision.

How can the OO be anything except sectarian when their aim is protestant ascendancy?

I think we can safely say none in Ros, Mayo or Galway.
Wouldn't think there's any in Sligo but it is rumoured there's one in Laythrum.
Good few Protestants round Mohill but I suspect they're too busy making a living to be bothered with bigotry or disrespecting their neighbours.
There was a statue of paedophile king Billy up in Boyle but he was removed in the 30s. The pillar is still there though.
No hatred or bigotry evident in this post then?

Show where you think there is?

Here's my completely unbiased report, innit?

In order to quell those pesky Irish natives after the Nine Year war in 1603, the English decided to plant their own in the troublesome counties. So local chieftains had to either bend the knee to the Queen or leave, while English and Scottish landlords were gifted their land. The new landlords were to bring their own tenants from England or Scotland. Any incumbent native Irish tenants could also stay on the land if they stopped speaking Irish, changed their name to the english version, dropped any Irish customs etc etc.

This all worked fine and dandy (except for the 1641 rebellion and a kerfuffle in 1690) until the penal laws were relaxed and the native Irish were allowed to keep weapons. Protestants weren't having that so they raided the catholic homes.

When catholics retaliated, the good old protestant arrogance was born, they stepped up their attacks on catholic homes and at the same time formed the Orange Order.

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:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41651066

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.

Is that a 2 points or 3 points score?

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?
