Think it is childish, but the faux outrage from unionists is laughable when one sees loyalist bonfires.

You cannot seriously dismiss it as childish. Itís a good deal worse than that.

The two faced ness of those who are outraged at one set bonfire messages but turn a blind eye to another does need to be called out. That issue is endemic in but not exclusive to political unionism

The same outrage could be applied to the burning of Fawkes or Lundy effigies. Plenty of the latter surname still about.

Itís not quite the same outrage. The message is a bit more targeted and personal when itís a living person, living just up the road. Willie is an asshole. Call him out as such but twisting the knife is someoneís grief is just nasty and classless

Why do the morons on 'our side of the fence' so to speak always let us down!

To me its more a social depravation issue on both sides, resulting in sectarianism!

Its moronic copy cat behavior which lowers themselves to the same level as loyalists on the 11th night. Oh they have bonfires burning tricolours on the 11th so we have to have one in August and burn the union jack. They've now started to add offensive signs on the bonfires in the past few years as the other side have done the same.
Who in the right mind wants to go to light or watch a bonfire anyway? Not my culture.

Not only that but it gives oxygen to Willie and his obnoxious faux outrage.

I agree its more than just childish, its pathetic.
Good to see SF strongly condemn this.
More needs to be done  to stamp this sort of stuff out.

These clowns would probably claim to be Irish nationalists, they are an embarrassment.

They are the low-brow knuckle-draggers of our society. I bet they know very little about Irish history.

Well said. Equally stupid is the line of unionists and others lining up to condemn it while saying nothing when our flag is on top of a bonfire on the 11th night.

Monkey sees monkey does... United Ireland? not a chance while these numpties continue to stoke fires.. Only needs to be one incident to their 50 that will continue to allow the DUP and others to keep division.. the thing is, the communities knew or could have stopped the headers from putting it up, but decided not too
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

It's the way this incident gets media attention that irks me......hate crime😳 The unionist/loyalist complaining about this are fine with burning anything nationalist and all things republican. United Ireland.....not in my lifetime.

It is a hate crime though and it should be followed up on as such.  I don't care if themmuns do it 500 times every summer.  We shouldn't do it EVER as it's lowest of the low, gutter trash behaviour.  We should be above it.

That bonfire should be removed immediately along every wee sc**bag associated with the building of it.

100%.

What "themmuns" get up to every summer and how politicians react to it is irrelevant. This load of shite should be condemned unequivocally and without qualification

Whoever did this are class A, knuckle dragging idiots.  Bonefires on 9th August are every bit as ridiculous as those on 11th July and have little or nothing to do with how I see my Irish identity and culture.
